Was it a 1GB 8500 GT? Cause I can't see how the 512MB 8500 GT could handle a resolution of 1600x1000.

i overclocked the living crap out of it. from 450 core all the way to 658core. and it was 256mb believe it or not. i think there was something wrong with that card it performed too good. it ram at like 75c max load too with the crappy stock cooler

Do you think I would be able to max out new games at 1280x1024 on a 512mb 3870?
