  1. First off, the mem always posts as half its rated speed. DDR (Double Data Rate) take your 400 and double it = 800mhz.

    As for sure you didnt buy a 6600GT?

    Because if your cards are 8 pipe parts, then you need to get your $$ back.
    Sometimes benchmark utilities can be a little screwy, so it doesnt mean your card is missing components...anywho;

    Want to overclock? Rivatuner, coolbits or ATI tool basically.
  2. download the famous OC software RIVATUNER, it will tell you the number of pipelines and the mem&core speed.
    if your card actully with 8 pipelines, i think it's is a 6600GT or 7300GT With 7600GS's bios.

    i wish it helps!
  3. Thanks to Raven_87 and Ghostyman for your tips ill download Rivatuner and give that a try and ill reply back with the stats after i try it.
