Jaggies and poor quality image.
Went back to origional bios, same results, No. its not fried.
Older games NFSHS , homeworld and such are fine.
Just too much work for the crappy 2.8 memory.
This has to be the worst 5900 xt on the market
and the most expensive to boot.
If your thinking of getting an xt get the leadtek.
Better quality, lower price.

All bfg seems to offer is a warranty.
not sure what you are telling me ?? Is the core resetting from a coolbits overclock of 430 to original card and bios stock of 399 ?? If so, it simply means the driver lost its overclocked control ---> so what, change the bios to 430 and it won't lose it !! Otherwise where does the 399 come from ??

and yes, same result with original bios obviously says it is not bios related !!

how hot were your memory chips running during all this mayhem ??

and yes again, you would have been better getting a Gainward or Leadtek card ??

and lastly, aren't BFG and Chaintech cards related in some way ? And if so, why not try the modified:-

Chaintech 5900XT bios,

Or if that doesn't work to satisfaction, why not try the Aopen 5900XT bios which many people with different cards have had a lot of success with,


during all your testing, what driver were you using ???
The more I know, the more I know I don't know

Intel P4 3.2 @ 3.85GHz (ASUS P4C800E-Deluxe)
BFG 6800GS (16x1,6vp) @ 300/430/1200.

Driver, 82.12 :-
Aquamark3, 75039
Codecreatures1, 90.8
3Dmark05 v120, 6195
3Dmark03 v360, 14334
3Dmark06 v102, 2949
