Default Thanks FRYS!

Apparently they are shipping Superclocked EVGA 8800GT's from FRYS packaged as just regular 8800GT's.

Here's my GPU-Z readout as soon as I threw it in my computer.

Such a deal for $229...

You realize you are running your PCI-E port at only 4x. Major bottleneck

I didn't even notice that when I first looked. How do I change that?


Thanks for the heads up

Weird huh? I wonder if they were mis-flashed or mis-packaged by EVGA? Anywho, I'm not complaining...
