Default 7800gt Flash To 7800gtx

ok the 7800gt with 20 pipes is a pretty fast card, and the 7800gtx is a really fast video card. but there is a price jump between them if you notice lol so, you do get what you pay for.

but what are the chances of getting it to flash to gtx?

I dont know if you can flash it but I know you could unlock the 4 pipes like rivatuner and oc easily to gtx specs saving yourself 100 bucks atleast.

I heard that it took abit of luck to actually unlock the 4 pipes with rivatuner. I got the 7800GT with the copper heatsink so that i could eventually OC this to GTX speeds if i was lucky. Either way they are still great cards for the price.

so what your saying is, if you unlock with riva tunner i must always have riva tuner as a startup right? so it boots up windows and then bam! 24pipes. its really easy to overclock to gtx speeds, most of the 7800gt' hit 480 out of the box, and like 1.3ghz memory. because there rated at 2ns which is 1.2ghz

i would reccomend throwing a giant heatsink more like a cpu heatsink on the video card and then try and reach 500 mhz core
thats 10000 texiles per second !!! with like 40 something gig bandwidth

How would you go about unlocking the 4 extra pipes, if you could.

Vybuni, did you do anything special to reach those speeds? What are your system temps and what model 7800 did you have?
