Almost double core speed! I get about 11,000 in 3DMark 05, and around 6,000 in 06.
Wow that's a huge overclock and nice 3DMarks.
Is this kind of sure thing on any 7900GT card or is it specific to certain cards only? Any more details on that, is the overclock stable and is any special cooling required? Sometime people have different interpretation what is stable, for me stable means no games crashing at all.
Right now I'm mainly playing Oblivion and NFS-Most wanted.
I have BBG 7800 GTX OC by factory and little by me and my 3DMark05 is 9152 and 3DMark06 is 4679, the free Futuremark let me publish only one figure.
Anyway I like to buy a new widescreen monitor at least 1080p so for sure I would also need a new graphic card or go SLI.
The problem is my BBG 7800 GTX OC still cost little over $400.00 new,
for old card.
Other solution was to get used one at eBAY at about $200.00 not bad for SLI.
Now when I read this maybe I'm better off selling my card and get the 7900GT, at least yours 3DMarks would agree with that.
I don't think any overclocking mod like this exist for my card?
Also is the 7900GT 512MB overclocking as well or is it better in that case to buy the 7900GTX
