Default Re: GTX 285 and PCI-E 8x....

I bet if you ran your CPU at my speeds (as you have the same CPU) you would probably get around the same score. I'd say you are fine.
K that's good to know... I'd like to clock my cpu up a bit but i'm running into serious temp issues when I overvolt... soon as I get a new heatsink I'll be better off.

I took the card out today, it hardly affected performance but I did notice that it went up slightly... I can't really confirm that the 8x pci-e was gimping performance but just to be on the cautious side i'm going to leave it out for now... 8600 GT is pretty underpowered anyway for some physx enabled games
