It's a really good price. They get to be pretty good overclockers, it that's what you're looking for. Also, they're quick as lighting, I've had one since their release. It's a pretty good OCer, and it still runs everything at max settings.
im thinking about geting this card too. it seems like a really good deal its just that a lot of places don't seem to be selling it. ebay is selling it but i feel more secure when i buy it from some1 like google. anyway im surprised that it doesn't run max in far cry.
I am not sure I would be spending $200 for a previous gen card when there are parts coming out for the mainstream from nvidia right now (and ati in a bit) that are around $299 or so and below and have better performance...
the geforce 6800 (vanilla... not SE/GT/U or U EE) is probably the card to check out...
Well tried out the card with a few games and i am pleased with the card i run far cry on high settings and it runs great..
Doom 3 on high as well only x2 anti aliasing though anything higher and it slows down..u/t 2004 on high no problems at all and call of duty. o ya and the card is overclocked.
I am very happy with my purchase thx again everyone for your info
curious this thread popped up - I've just been trying to sort out my Sapphire 9700 pro which is having issues with UT2004.... could I ask if your cards BIOS is dated 2002/10/31? It's one of the things I've looked at in desperation, running latest Catalyst 4.8 drivers and on AMD xp3000+ with 1GB ram so not sure what else I can do....
Hate to say it but in my googling research I did hear some slightly bad things about the misleading nature of some memory claims on the Atlantis card particularly, but then again we are not paying premium for these any more (thank goodness! Got mine 2nd hand from another OSNN member around the £100 mark)
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
