7900GTX standard clocks are 650 on the core 800x2 (1600Mhz) on the memory. The GTX ones i had cauldnt even do 750 on the memory..which is underclocking..thats how ****ed up the ram was.

And your one is a 7900GT..which also suffers from the bad memroy.

As for BF2..i cauld play it..after awhile funny lines come..CS Source played fine..but FEAR..craps out.

7900GTX standard clocks are 650 on the core 800x2 (1600Mhz) on the memory.

You linked a GT...and its an xfx extreme one..you might wanna check if your card is ok..you should be able to tell it easy. The old GT ones has Samsun ram..the new ones has Infenion..people report these new ones have fixed the problem.

As for your clocks..its 520 GPU Core/ 1500 Mem (750x2).

So yea your card is running on its right memory. The NVCP shows it as DDR1..i think its a bug or something...but it wont matter..if you tried to set ure memory to 1500 manually there..thats like 3000 -.-...that will most likely kill the card...haha :)
