Talking Finally Got My 8800!!!

GOD!!! Thank you everyone so much for baring with me while buying all the previous vid cards and returning them... I returned a lot of unwanted crap today and came up with the money for my new eVGA 320mb 8800GTS!!!

I simply can only say F'ing Amazed... I don't know why anyone would even want to game without one,,, it was such a waste of time looking for anything else... Came home played BioShock,,, max settings on 1680x1050,,, I'm getting like 45-60 FPS... F.E.A.R Averaging like.... 80 on Highest as well. Anything I throw at it,,, I LOVE IT!!!

eVGA = AMAZING!!!

BTW, I ran 3DMARK06 and scored 8343... I don't know how good this is or not I'm only familiar with the old 3DMARK05... So is that a good score or no??? Last night I had my 8600GT eVGA and ran like a 3,000 so I didn't know... Ha,, anyway anyone considering 8800's .... eVGA 320mb Edition... is Amazing... I can vouche for it, and I'm sure a lot of other people can.

And thanks again for everyone helping me out... Even though I ran the card for like a day.. :-) Satisifed now though... =]

12k-13k is expected from a system with a GTX, not GTS. But if he overclocked his system, he can get to 10k.
