I tried any possible thing to squeze all the power out of my 6800 Ultra. Formated both hard drives, new windows tried both Nvidia and Omega drivers even tried the card on my friends computer and its all the same its pretty bad. My friend's x800 pro beats the crap out of my card in any game even doom 3. I just ordered a x850 Xt so i can finally say goodbye to this crap and overclockit till its burns out. Ill videotape it too.

You have a serious problem if this is true.

Thats how im gona do it. Put woltage to max, Gpu speed to max, memeory speed to max, turn all the warning crap off and remove the heatsink + fan.

I would send it to one of you guys but im too lazy to pack it and bring it to UPS.
