well, i have it for a week now.
not a singel problem at all. nothing, works like a charm.
however, because my PSU is ageing (i'm surpised that it is still working...), i can't oc my card. the detect opimal says i can go as far as 416/1170. but it wont hold, as my screen will start to act like alight show.

i'm playing farcry, doom3, halo, kotor, generals and nwn.
farcry nets me 43~ steady fps (1280x1024, all high, 4aax8af).
doom3 nets me 47~ (16x12, high settings)
halo nets me about 30-40 at 1280x1204 no aa or af.
kotor rules! 40~ at 1280x1024 2aa8f with soft shadows!
all in all i'm quite happy with my system performance and the card is awsome!

i would recomend the hyper 6 from cooler master first befor any others. it just works. very well too, also, what was your question and how does it relate to the 6800 gt? or is this a brag? lol very impressive tho, but whats with halo? only 40? my old 5900 se used to pick up a minimum of 40. a maximum of 281! but only while staring at the sky ;)

well, if its here you might as well make it something about 6800's. so explain, does anyone know why its only 40 fps for halo? do you have vsync on man?

yup. i took the vsync off and now i get "a minimum of 40. a maximum of 281! but only while staring at the sky;)"
btw, the card has 2 dvi connections, and is in purple/blueis color...

cool
that answer cleared things up a bit at least,
you said 30-40, you didnt say minimum, so i thought minimum was 30, maximum was 40

Those benchmarks yearn for a super fast CPU.

Well i just ordered me a MSI 6800GT myself can't wait to get it, i should hopefully get the best out of my A64 3500+ now :)

Incidentally, regarding those benches, I get similar results, only proportionally lower as per me having a 6800 NU and slightly slower CPU. I wouldn't have expected such low results, but game performance begs to differ, so I'm not too worried.

Judging by the fact you both have similar systems, id say get another 512 in ram,(gig total) and your cpu....not much to do with that but OC or Upgrade.

that's the plan.

If and when you get that extra RAM, would you mind posting performance changes?

FYI I didnt sell it to him and I am not promoting/marketing XFX products. The only time I will be promoting XFX products is when I get my one and test it out. I have read about satisfied customers and dissatisfied customers for almost all brands of 6800 Gt and ultra's and its just pleasing to see that overall there appear to be a lot of happy XFX customers.
