Tomshardware showed overclocking and they said they were dissapointed that it only got about 11% more performance. Then again they only got the core to 680mhz and you can buy factory overclocked ones with more than that.

I want to see if they find a volt mod for these...they already run very quiet, cool, and use low watts. A volt mod to like 750+ on the core would just be sick..

Also, how do you go about overclocking cards when they are in SLI.

There are ways...you can just turn each card up slowly until they each reach their max. I don't think that they have to be the same clock speed...I know the X1950XT's could be a slave card to the faster X1950XTX's...but that was crossfire.

the best way is to individually find each cards max clocks

then when you SLI them set it to the lowest cards settings.

I'd say its a better buy than the ultra. At fry's you could get 3 GT's for what I paid for the ultra XD Course up here I couldn't get a GT for under 300 most likely. Even if currency's the same noone's gonna change pricing anytime soon. I've found a couple places that are startiong to ship to canada again but as far as places like newegg zzf clubit and such im outta luck XD

All this said and done I probably still woulda gone for the ultra over sli GT's.. just because I still have the option to SLI the ultra. Though that'd probably be a waste considering the 9 series might nearly be out by the time I can afford it.
