Default Re: Two GTX 480s vs Three 5870s

I bought the two GTX 480s. I'm trying them out before selling the three 5870s.

Seems like there's a lot of room for overclocking. I'm currently sitting at 800MHz Core, 1600MHz shader, and 2000MHz memory. Can probably go higher still.

One thing I didn't expect is nHancer not working. When I had my two GTX 285s and two GTX 280s, it was easy to use the utility to create custom SLI profiles for games that didn't have it, or didn't work with the default profile. Luckily, nVidia released a tool called "GeForce SLI Profile Tool" to edit in custom profiles in a non-GUI manner. Still have to figure out what all of the hex codes mean.
