well it certainly overclocks VERY good. on 1680x1050 in my rig, it runs crysis on medium settings (no AA) at about 35 frames. (beginning of crysis, all i tested so far, and maxes out rainbow six Vegas 2.

^^ If you game at 1440x900 (which I do) the 8800gs is perfect. With mine overclocked to 680/800 it stays well above 60fps on COD4 multiplayer with 2x AA and AF.

baron5 how far have you overclocked your 8800gs?

Sweet, that's what I game at... I was planning on the HD 3850 for $60, but for the extra $10 and all those Physics Enhancements nVidia has, I'm just going to jump on them.

Vern your rig is coming along huh? I keep seeing new parts. I take it your not getting your 7950gt? Don't worry I'm still waiting on my I/O plate for 2.5 months now from him. I don't think I'm getting it. I'm ****ed at him. I've been pretty patient
