So I adjusted my clock from 1500 to 1499 and it went from 1512 to 1458 :(

I'll be investing in a cheap pci-e card for the meanwhile to send mine to xfx.
God...ANOTHER one dead!?!

My System Specs


Well I got my 8800GT SC RMA from Evga and it is working just fine... YAY! They actually cross shipped for me so I was able to use the underclocked one while I waited. They were very quick and I got my new card in a week.

I quickly OC'd it to SSC settings and tried a bunch of games (Crysis, Bioshock, FEAR, Prey). Everything looked and played fantastic, even Crysis with the XP Very High hack @ 1680x1050. Now I need to find how far this baby will OC.

"this is not troll. this is real deal!" - hohohee

See the drop down!

Well, for a hug I guess I could stop being lazy for about...2 minutes xD

http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/PID-MX19030(ME).aspx - Bam! XFX GeForce 8800GT Alpha Dog. Though it is limited...so they probably only actually have one left in stock...

http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/PID-MX19084(ME).aspx - Or...the XFX GeForce 8800GT Alpha Dog XT Edition, which they have 6 in stock...and is 299 instead of 289.

I was going to check out NCIX and Direct Canada, but I figured you already checked those. Just a word of warning though, there shipping price is actually a bit higher then places like NCIX, but oh well.

Do I get a hug now? xD
