Im looking to buy a new video card, specifically a BFG GeForce 6800GT OC 256mb, and would like to get some additional information.
First: Im planning on getting mine from the local Best Buy because I like the possibility of returning it if theres something wrong and being able to talk to the people. Still I feel that $400.99 is a bit steep and I am wondering if this is just me worrying. Is there a similar quality video card that I can get for a lower price that would be as reliable? And if anyone wants to suggest ATI then I would just like to say that I have had too many problems with that brand in the past to get one now. I know that some people have great success with ATI but that just my experience, please no flames.
Second: someone once told me that the 6800GT could easily be set to operate at the speed and pipelines of a 6800Ultra. Im wondering as to the veracity of this statement and where I could find some more information on the subject. Also the card is clocked at 370MHz and I was wondering if anyone here has tried to over-clock one, and how much success they have had.
Thanks to everyone who responds.
