the difference between a 9800gt and gtx 260 is HUGE...

depending on what resolution you play and what games...

answer this first.... what games are you playing and what size is your screen...

the 550 is 36a 2 rails
the 650 is 57a 3 rails

I'll try it later today.

"Try hitting max Core or Max Memory and let it screw around until it finds the highest Core speed"

Is this in ATITool or Riva?

It's in.

ATI Tool says driver not running (or something)
and won't let me click max core or max mem.

Did I miss a step?
How do I get it running?
(vista 64 & nvidia 180)

Thanks.

Edit:

Also... I have a plain gtx 260........

What would be the best gtx 260 version?
GTX260 Core 216 SC Edition 896MB DDR3

With gtx 280's what's the better version?

Thanks.

What about 260's?

Still can't run ATI Tool.
Any ideas?
