Youll be happy with it. I know I am. However, I am having a problem with me launching gmaes and them just freezing. Hopefully you wont have the same issue. Or any. Make sure you post up your 3DMark06. I get clost to 14k now compared to my 9k with my GTS 640. :D

What I think Im going to end up doing is formatting my OS drive and see if its not just something that got corrupt or something from my last card transition.

I get 14406 with my 8800GTS 512mb and i ran it 3 times and got 14406 everytime.Thats a frist i never ever got the same score 3 times in a row with any 3Dmark benchmark.With just a small OC to 700/1000/1800 i got 14959

Oh Tay

Dam your GT is as fast as my 512mb GTS and your quad is running 200mhz slower.What clocks is that GT pushing?

Right now, I have it at stock because im trying to figure out as to why when I load certain games they freeze my computer yet other games dont. Im about ot reload Vista and give it a go again.

But I think I was at 735/1000. That includes a linked shader overclock with the memory. :)

Yes, it happened to me only on the lite-on dvd writer it does the click sound like it's accessing a floppy. Works fine on my Asus Dvd drive though.

I just played the game a little and it's freaking amazing, it's like I'm on a frigging movie! Even though I'm on (what most consider) low fps it's still very smooth.

I'll run 3dmark06 later, I only have the basic edition (free) so I don't know how will that affect the score.

I can't wait to overclock I'm hoping to hit at least 675Mhz core and 1950Mhz Memory, and my Quad to at least 3.2ghz. :D

Whats the deal with lite on and samsung?And dont worry your gonna hit your goals with ease with your Q6600 and your GT.My Quad right now is running 3.2ghz at 1.275v.Much lower voltages than my E6420

Well I got 11915 in 3dmark06 everything stock speeds, althought I ignored the tip of the day which told me to close all background programs, I still had 55 processes running which is the normal startup for me so that could have affected the score. Also when I checked the scores online it told me this.

I'm running the latest drivers 169.21. I don't know if my score is great, but I'll keep benching as I overclock to see if it gets better.

I hate to be the bringer of bad news, but EVGA 680i boards overclock quads likes**t. Dont be surprised if the highest you can go is 3GHz.

I get with my 320MB and the E2160 about 10400. Should i go and get a 512MB 8800GTS or GT? Maybe sell my gts? My local computer store has the 256MB version, should I consider it instead? It is a little bit cheaper. I am running a 19" lcd so I am locked to 1440*900. Would I notice much of a difference? BTW atm the cpu is clocked down to 3.01ghz with 333fsb*9x multiplier. It's summer over here and I dont have air conditioning...just yesterday it was 42c here...I thought Id best tone it down

How did you manage to get a better 06 score than I when I had my 640 and a quad core!?

It is overclocked. it runs at 618/1352/1800. And the cpu was running with a fair overclock, around 80%.

I never could understand why when I had the better system my score sucked so much compared to lesser systems which did better. Boggles my mind.
