Wow. I can hardly imagine the massive jump that was. That is beyond a night and day difference across the board.

I went from dual 7600GTs to dual 8800GTSs. Only running one GTS now cause the other is in use by another machine.

Hey thanks eliminator for the in depth review.

a couple questions...

What resolution were you running oblivion at? I run at 1680 x 1050 @ ultra settings w/ 8x aa and NO aa and get on average between 40 - 50 fps out doors. The game looks prettier with 4x aa (obviously) but it drops my fps down to 30 in a lot of out door vistas.

Also, I'm wondering how long you played Oblivion with your card OC'd to 630 core clock speed. I tried doing the same on the settings mentioned above and it played for about 30 minutes before crashing to desktop. I'd challenge you to put that OC to the test by applying similar settings and running the game for a good duration

also, my card idles at 58ish @ 600 MHz, so I really want to OC it some more but for some reason it seems to crash in Oblivion after a period of time if its any higher than that. the memory frequency is at 1000. I'm using 166.22 WHQL. I guess this isn't much of a question lol so much as a wishful remark.

anyway glad you like your card. I upgraded from a 6800 ultra so I really can't wait to get my hands on a game that will put my card to the test.

cheers!

oblivion like all other tests was run at 1920x1200... for the test i was running patch 1.1... once i upgraded to patch 1.2 i lost about 20FPS in the same place outdoors but textures do look better... i havent tried playing long periods of time at 630/2100... thats more of a stable benchmark speed... for 24/7 use im currently at 600/1950 since i dont want it to heat up too much... with fan at 100% and clocks at 630/2100 the card idles around 65*C and load 85*C... card is rock solid at 600/1950 though for 24/7 use

i just was unlucky and got the CD version, few months ago i lost the CD4. So will have to either get a copy of fourth disc or buy a new game.

Thats why I actually bought a 2900XT to test out, everyone elses reviews just aren't telling me what I want to see. Especially when it's the same apps over and over and at astronomical resolutions. I wanted to see 1280x1024 with 4xAA/16AF and AAA or trans aa (nv) - the 2900XT is really weak at this resolution, but the GTS excels!

So far the GTS I have (648/1000) is really smacking it down. The 2900XT gains so little when overclocked, the GTS gains so much. AA performance is abysmal, hopefully they can correct that in a newer set of drivers, they've made progress but from my real world benchmarks they still need alot of work.
