Default New 8800GTS 320MB

Just bought a 8800GTS 320MB (EVGA) and am in the process of OC'ing it, this thread isn't really a question or in need of help, it's more of a thankyou to all those who helped with my other thread for choosing a new 8 series card.

Probably shouldn't be posting this but i felt i had to tell someone
because
this
card
is
so
AWESOME

going from a 7600GS to a 8500GT to this 8800GTS, i just have 1 word.
WOW!

Never played a game on this good fps with all max settings (i play everything at 1280x1024, i like it :P)!!

Using nTune (nvidia overclocking software) got it to 600MHZ core and 850MHZ memory stable, 65c load.

Which drivers are you using? Because the latest ones don't scale the shaders with the core clock.

You should be able to safely clock it up to 650/999. But you might want to look into redoing the heatsink with as5 as the thermal pads/grease they use are kind of crappy. My temps dropped about 10C when i redid the TIM.
