pny ultra

had freeze prob's in the beginning(early bios release)
then came here to see that everyone else had the prob too
unlocked coolbits equlized clock freq's (425mhz)
prob gone
then found omni extreme edited my bios freq's and voltages
and flashed the card so i dont need coolbits
but now added a nv sil 5 oc'ed to 461/1150 max temp 60C
using 61.36's they ran the coolest for me
but i start getting arties around 475/1190
still trying to find an extreme bios that will flash to my card

I got a Gainward 6800GT, mainly because it was actually in stock at a decent price

eVga 6800Gt, I modded the bios the day after I got it. Runs perfect. I have decent scores in benchmarks and it works great for gaming. Imho the BFG and eVga are probably the ways to go as they are usually in stock and I got mine the day after I ordered it. The BFG has lifetime warranty, so if you're not overclocking it's a good solution. Both cards are virutally the same price. I did however get a copy of doom3 with my card so that's kindof an insentive to buy eVga. eVga tech support is fast and concise. However, stock cooling sucked and I replaced it with an NV-5 which keeps the temps very low. ohhh and Btw max overclock stable was 432 core and 1249 memory. No need to run it like that except for benching.

Hope this helps

What bios mod did you use and will it work fine with stock cooling. I hit a brick wall with my eVGA at 405 core and 1110 memory. I want to go higher. How do I flash the bios and what are the benefits of it. Once again, all I can have right now is stock cooling so will a bios flash be worth it for me?

Gainward 6800GT "Ultra 2400 Golden Sample". (AGP)

Stock cooling.

Runs fine at 420/1200, but I run it at 400/1100 for warranty reasons. Especially now that Gainward has pulled out of the US.
