Default The Wonders of the 7800GT

All I can say is wow! I never thought my games could look this good and be this smooth. You all know my take on benchmarks, but they are fun to do anyways. Here are mine

3dMark05: 7375
3dMark03: 15032
Aquamark3: 70096

Ran into a little driver conflict with the Nvidia SW-IDE driver, but without that driver, this system runs like a dream.

good to see you now have a card you're happy with.
the 7800 GT will be able to run Doom 3 a lot better than your X800 Pro, especially being an Nvidia card.

aquamark is really system dependant like 3dmark01.

I get 7k higher in Aquamark but 1k lower in both 3dmark05 and 03

congratulations on your upgrade. How is the X-FI?

After you've overclocked the hell out of it. This is completely stock scores.

As long as the SW-IDE drivers were installed, I was getting a BSOD about 10 seconds after logging in to windows. I figured the problem out because eventually when it rebooted, it wouldn't start Windows and said the IDE driver was corrupted.

Thanks for clearing that up. I got BSOD on every reboot of installing new software. I ended up formatting again, and ended up leaving that out.

Will you be unlocking the 4 extra pipelines? (if it will let you.)

I don't think the extra pipes are unlockable on the 7800GT as they are with the 6800 NU. This thing is plenty fast, so I don't think im going to risk it.
