krazypoloc Posted August 18, 2007 Posted August 18, 2007 Thanks a lot guys for all your advice about my new VGA card upgrade path. I wasn't so sure I would see that great of a performance increase over 2x 7800GT's that I previously had in my main rig. But wow let me tell you this thing is wicked fast. I was worried about it being able to keep up at my screens 1680x1050 resolution, but it runs everything amazingly!!! I just staerted running through all my games yesterday and every one plays perfectly at max settings. Stalker,Supreme Commander, Oblivion, DiRT, HL2. And a 3Dmark06 score of 9500. This card is also a monster overclocker, I think I can probably get it to 690/1200, but I haven't done any fine tooth comb overclocking yet. However this card does run pretty hot, about 6c hotter than my 7800GT's at maximum load @75c. But I am extremely pleased that the stock cooler is so silent. On a side not I just put in my Tuniq tower and man was that a pain. Very poor documentation and I had to put my original CPU retention bracket back on just to get it to fit. But the performance is more than worth it. My idle load temps are 40/44. And I have the fan set @5k, whick is silent. Thanks again guys I just love this forum and appreciate all the people that make it happen ADK Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
