Thumbs down You're kidding me, right

Core2Duo E8400 @ 3.6Ghz(400x9)
evga 680i LT SLI (T1 Version)
Corsair XMS 2x1GB 4-4-4-12 DDR2 800Mhz
eVGA+nVidia 8800 GTX SLI
Corsair 750W PSU

2GB of DDR2 @ 800MHZ, C2D (who cares what speed), and 680i board???

Come on man, you're looking to get crazy performance out of just a video card upgrade. Have looked at the rest of your system lately??? You could have gotten a lot more out of that GTX285 with PCIe 2.0, maybe some DDR3 ram, and an i7, possibly a 64-bit operating system. Even one of these upgrades would get you further. Try updating more of your system to keep up with you video card. You just put a V8 ZR1 LS9 in a Cavalier(and was upset)... yea it will fit, but the rest of the car can't even keep up with the engine.

Be more honest with yourself...you really don't rate to put out a review on BRAND new video card installing it in a 2 year old system, okay i'll give you 1.25yrs old cause you have a 45nm C2D chip....
