well I Just got my EVGA 9600GT SC and it's running great so far. The performance increase over my heavily overclocked 8600gt is mind blowing. I've only played UT3 so far and run 3dmark06 but can't wait to try more games now. Finally I have a card that is more suitable for my processor!

I've just noticed that my BIOS is: 62.94.11.00.07 (vs. 62.94.0D.00.07 of you guys' card). Which is the latest?

My 3DMark06 score is: 10658 (1280x1024) and all options checked. This is on my Quad Q6600 (dedault speed) on the P5B Deluxe.

Is yours EVGA? I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but maybe it does.

Yeah, it's EVGA 9600 Super Clock just like yours. What's your single card score?

My EVGA SC bios is 62.94.0D.00.02. What are you using to read yours?

Are you saying your card is performing better than everyone elses?

When talking hexidecimal 11 should be the newer version. 0D = 13 and 11 = 17.

Yes, from what I understand, the second number is the number to look at. For example, an 8800 is better than a 9600 because 8 is higher than 6. As someone else said, it is very confusing, but you get it eventually.

My single card score is around 9-10k.

No, not saying that. Just noticed that on everyone's GPU-Z screen, it's the 62.94.0d.00.02 but mine says it's 62.94.11.00.02, so I was just asking around.

I use GPU-Z to read and can read it on the back of the card itself and both say the same thing as I indicated.

yeah that's what I use to. my 3dmark06 score was 9876 (4633-4303-2385). I am going to oc my cpu to 3.2 ghz soon and have my ram at a 1:1 ratio and see how much my score improves. this is the regular sc edition.

I maxed out on the SC edition to 760MHz Core 980MHz Memory, but I run it at 750MHz/960MHz. I think it's pretty good. I might Step-Up to two 9800GTX's. If my board can handle Tri-SLi, then I'll invest in another 9800GTX.


EDIT: I'll need to get a 780i board, too. A cool EVGA one.

that's a pretty nice overclock. I am probably going to leave my as it is until I need the extra power. I'm not playing any games atm that this thing can't already handle on my 22 inch lcd.
