Default Sat's BFG GeForce 6800 GT OC Review

Ed "saturnotaku" Piotrowski has finished his review of the BFG GeForce 6800 GT OC. This is a singular review of the BFG 6800 GT OC. Although not compared against another card, Ed does provide a variety of benchmarks and some helpul insight as to what this card has to offer.

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.

Looks good so far. Just a quick note, I get an error when clicking the link at the bottom of the first page ("Next Page: Test setup and Forceware drivers"). If I click the link in the TOC, it works.

This is the error:

The requested URL /reviews/bfg_geforce_6800_gt_oc/page_2.shtml was not found on this server.

Edit: Nice review Ed. I was particularly interested in it because your CPU is close to mine and I'm also using a GT. Very nicely done. I look forward to the CPU scaling article as well as I'm currently contemplating upgrading my mobo and CPU.

Yep, the link on the first page to the second has an underscore in the filename, it should go to page2.shtml not page_2.shtml. Just wanted to point that out.

Nice review as always.

How about the noise of this card?? I've read on some other sites that its noticeably louder than the X800's and read an end-user review that said the whining pitch of the fan drives him crazy?

I am ready to buy this card except that “noise” is an issue for me and I really don’t want to listen to a video card fan all the time so “how loud is it?”

Just the BFG one or GTs in general? I have an eVGA GT and an X800 Pro and I can't tell a difference in the noise level. My systems are fairly quiet and I can't hear either one above the system noise. Although, on boot you can hear the GT as the fan revs up. Can you provide the link to the review where they mentioned that?

Edit: As far the pics, I can't enlarge any of them until I reach Halo. From Halo on, it works for me. Actually, just make mine a double of what Saz is having. I'm having issues with the same pics.

Edit 2: zillatech, actually, I have read that some have had problems with the fan rubbing against the enclosure when first getting them. It may have been that problem that the reviewer mentioned (b/c it is a loud and annoying sound and could take a while to go away).

BRB, let me try Mozilla as well, for comparison.

Edit: seems to work fine in Mozilla but not IE

Ok, I've tried in Firefox without any problems. In IE there is an error because of a javascript "invalid argument" error...the js statement just isn't complete, looking into it now...

In general, reviews have said that the GT's are louder than the X800's and I recently ditched my X800 Pro to wait for Nvidia's 6800 GT's/Ultras. From what you’re saying the GT sounds like it has "acceptable" noise levels. Also, since you have both the X800 Pro and the GT, which one do you prefer and why? I myself have come to love Nvidia's drivers and game compatibility
