GTX 295 Upgrade + Cpu Overclock Tags: Homebuilt Gtx Overclocking Systems Last response: August 20, 2009 11:30 AM in Systems Share stormpool August 20, 2009 9:23:50 AM My GT8800 ultra 768mb failed last night. I want to get a new graphics card, was thinking GTX 295. But ideally i'd want to replace my MS-7235 fpr PCI-E 2 at least, and I thought perhaps an Asus P5Q Pro turbo Then I thought I better overclock my Q6600 to help keep up with the vcard by getting a thermalright Ultra-120 I have 4 x 1gb ram not sure if it's 800/1066 though. Can anyone see a flaw in my plan or have better suggestions?
