Video card upgrade complete!

#1
Okay so I got fed up of ATI/AMD's inability to fix their opengl driver and got me an 8800GTX. For those of you in the UK I got this card: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-051-OK

pushed the clocks yesterday to 626Mhz core, whatever RivaTuner set the shader clock to and 2000MHZ (1000MHZ real) off the bat and played Neverwinter Nights 2 addon for the next 12 hours without issue.

High point for me is the working OpenGL driver :)

Highly recommended from me.

ATI hardware isn't bad. They just can't get their OpenGL driver working :(

Having said that I'm exceedingly happy with the 8800GTX. Fast, works.

I just hate thinking about how I could buy the latest super graphics card now but generally when I do the following week the next best thing is announced.

So I lie waiting, like a ninja.

I have had mine now for 10 months and it is a fantastic card ... congrats to you ! Mine is the GTS but it is in the same ball park ... at the time the GTX was a little too expensive .

I bought it on saturday while at work. Sunday I started playing at 9am and finished at 3am when I really had to sleep before work. It's awesome, where the original campaign gets boring.

There's nothing revolutionary on the immediate horizon, and you know it. NOW IS THE TIME TO STRIKE!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
