Do you have to match the memory with the core or...?

i don't believe for a second that's anywhere near stable

oZone3D.Net - FurMark | OpenGL Benchmark | GPU Burner | Video Card Stability Test | Fur Rendering, OpenGL 2.0, GLSL shaders, Overclocking Test

download that and run it and see what happens

also, if you game at 1440x900 why did you buy a GTX 260? At that resolution you won't see much difference from an 8800GT....it's lower than 1280x1024

Yeah, GTX 260 at 1440x900 is a waste.

1680x1050 or higher would be ideal.

Lol those clocks arent meant to be stable..and I get pretty bad artifacts running them in crysis. Most cards cant even reach those... I'll run that program and see what happens though

So what's the point of even posting them? I have had my 4850 to 1025mhz but it's not stable at all....I couldn't get it stable above 930mhz

I'll run the program..

LOL! she never got above 65C either..



Got anymore tests? You want me to run the endless torture test and see what happens? Dude just admit nvidia pwns

Good call on the OCZ ram with the Biostar MOBO. Definitely getting that.

Do you guys think I'll be able to play Crysis on the Highest, mid, or lowest settings?

nice try

Use the rivatuner hardware monitor to show that the card was actually running at those clocks during the test

like so:

when you click on the little arrow, instead of low level system settings look at the icon on the very right with the magnifying glass
