I've OC my Gigabyte 880gt to:

GPU CLOCK: 685MHZ
I was suggested to set it to 700MHZ however any Hertz above 685 made 3DMARK06 to crash.
Memory: 1035MHZ
Shader: 1755MHZ

Score on 3DMARK06 - 14008

How is the score? good enough? any suggestion wether to approve or to lower the OC in order to gain card lifetime.

Would like to hear all the pros and cons on this one.

Thanks a lot.

anyone?

14k is pretty good for most people, listing your other specs would probably net you a larger response though. :p  (Like CPU & respective clock speed, Motherboard, etc) Also, there might be a thread for this somewhere.

Q6600 OC to 3.4GHZ
Crosair 800MHZ 1GB X 200 Small underclock stands at about ~770mhz
P5K-E WIFI-AP
ENERMAX 500W LIBERTY
AURORA 570
WD250GB YS X2 - RAID 0

14k is good enough? or should I try to increase more?

btw what did I hear its not suggested to increase memory about 1000mhz in the long term? is it right?

Your 3DMark score is more dependent on your CPU than O/Cing your video card.

I have the same graphics setup except with a BFG card. I got a higher overclock on the core and have not finished overclocking the memory, but my latest score with the hardware in my sig is 13,415. Few people with single cards have a score in the 14,000s. I would be pleased, as no two graphics cards OC the same.

I was getting around 13.5k in 3dmark06 with my rig (see sig)... Some people get higher, some get lower, but most of the mid-high range computers now are 12k-15k in 3dmark06, really.... anywhere in that range or above is good enough to play pretty much anything out now... with a few exceptions.

I would wager that you are not getting 13,500 with the rig in your sig right now... but you are right, if you are >12k, you can play just about anything right now.

What should be manditory though if posting a 3dmark06 score is the SM2/3/CPU breakdown. My 8800GT is at 700/1000 BFG (and yes I did hear a rumor that long term over 1Ghz @ memory will 'fry' it, not sure how true it is) I forget my SM2/3 scores but my CPU is about 2500. It's a $90 E2180 OC to 3Ghz. Not to shabby. I'll go grab the Q6600 when it's cheap enough for that half-way upgrade, the 88GT is gonna be nestled in my case for at least another 3 years or so. I'll update my SM scores when I get a chance. LoL Just noticed my detailed 06 scores are in my info, forgot about that, here it is.

3DMark Score 11283 3DMarks

SM 2.0 Score 5045 Marks

SM 3.0 Score 5408 Marks

CPU Score 2545 Marks

Thats with memory at 1950, I'll check my records for my cpu 3Ghz and GPU 700/1000 (I thinks its only 100-200 points higher with 1Ghz mem)

You can wager... i dont care. I said around that score... somtimes lower but thats AROUND my best one. I dont post exact numbers because who cares if you have 12,789 3dmark.. just say 12,800.

I'm not trying to be rude, but you aren't within a few points of 13,500 either... 12,800 is much more likely. The score itself doesn't matter. The misinformation you are spreading does.
