I just got it installed using 61.45 drivers for now only because i dont feel like messing with directx9.0c until it is released

I almsot had to rip out my front fan on my antec sonata..with the power cord on the card..i got about 1/4 inch between the power and the fan...luckily I got it working good.

So far looks great running benchamrks...

I havent used an nvidia card since gefroce 3 ti 500...feel good to be home

I got my BFG 6800GT Overclocked on Tuesday, First thing I did was to take the little sticker off of the fan, that thing was just barely on there. Anyway I OC it to Ultra Speeds 400/1100 and it runs great. I can OC all the way up to 415/1150 with no troubles but any higher than that and I start getting artifacts and lock ups.

At 400/1100 I get 12,000 in 3DMark03 and at 415/1150 I get 12,200

I am overall very pleased with this card, I have two PC's and my other has an X800XT PE in it that I lucked out in getting in late June. My PC's are nearly Identical aside from the PC with the ATI card being 200mhz faster. At stock speeds that PC gets 12,300 in 3DMark03.

I'd say that the BFG6800GT is a pretty impressive performer for the price being that it holds its own going up against the top of the line ATI card.

is it normal for 3dmark2001 to only og up 1000 points? I had an ti 9800 pro before?

My 3dmark2003 score doubled went from 5746 with ati 9800 pro to 11140 with BFG 6800 GT

Yeah, BFG sent out a replacement today. :cool: They didn't tell me what what went bad, but my guess is that the memory died. I started getting artifacts while surfing the forums then about 20sec later it hard locked. After that it booted with heavy artifacts.
