Dang dude, I might have to get that Gigabyte one. That's a crazy overclock.

I bought a Leadtek because of a review from Anandtech.com. It won editors choice over all the other 6600GTs. Review It's core overclocked from 500mhz to 565mhz. It's great and comes with Prince of Persia Warrior Within and Splinte Cell: Pandora Tomorrow. I love it.

Yeah but his doesn't show purple crap either probably

564 with stock cooling is all my eVGA can hit, but it can do 1.1GHz from stock 900MHz...not too shabby IMO.

1120 memory stock speed, with a fanless heatsink seems iffy to me.....doubt the memory would want to OC very far past that, but who knows. Get it and let us know

I think the point of him posting the link was to show that the card is considerably overclocked for a retail card. Plus, your card is PCI-E, whereas the link is AGP.
