More about which 8800gt install
  1. Given your going to overclock buy #4 and OC it to save the 70 bucks.
  2. Ok I see your point think its possible to reach the 700mhz with card #4 do you think it will pass that 700mhz easy or be limited arround that clock
  3. my question is whether evga bins their products... if so, the #4 might not reach #1's performance...
  4. There is a big jump in memory from #4 1800mhz to #3 1900mhz is it worth the 30 bucks and better chance at passing the #1 card
  5. Get one of the higher clocked ones and the free game. bfg's have the bigger fan after they upgraded.

    YOU, YOURSELF, cannot over clock the shaders, which are upped on the faster cards.
  6. get #4 and a nice cooler with what you save, like the thermalright HR-03GT,
    install rivatuner & overclock,
    You can overclock the shader clock in rivatuner!

    You can overclock shaders just fine on the 8800 using rivatuner... where did you get this wacky idea? (BTW if you're using XP there's a trick to get the Shader OC'ing feature)

    ...and that trick is.....???

    :)
  9. msi 8800GTS 730mhz

    they are not going to make the evga 700 anymore i am pretty sure those chips are going into a better card?

    when you buy the factory oc like an evga you get a higher bin part and you chances of a faster card
  10. so should I go with #3 is that the best bet of the list
