    hey Skitzo i got a 9600GT and some love overclocking my quad so i pulled 13,486 3d marks:D

    9600GT: 775/1944/2100
    Q6600: 3600mhz

    not bad for a midrange card, and a decent cpu oc.

    too funny

    yeah mine runs stock at 740 so I need what a couple mhz to beat you on gpu core lol. I grabbed the xfx alpha dog. :rockout:
    Ihaven't had a chance to oc yet. But I tell ya, as an htpc card, tv veiwing is the best I've seen yet. woohoo! :roll:
    I've only had my e6750 up to 3.52 Ghz. Need better ram to hit higher. It hit 3.2 with stock voltages ... sweet. And no temp problems, never goes above 53C with a zalman 8700 set at 50%. Doesn't seem to like that oc since I've updated all the drivers.:banghead:

    so far @ 775/1944/2100 and the Q6600@ 3600mhz, shes pulling.

    ~350 fps, in lightsmark 1280x1024
    13,486 06'3dmakrs
    ~180,000 aquamarks

    as for games halo on full @ 1440x900 is 280-550 fps :D
    test drive unlimited 1440x900 Max +HDR +4xAA is 65 fps solid.

    thats about all ive tested so far, any more reccomendations?

    and thanks again solaris, ima make some of that post into my sig later, being a solaris17 recognised and respected overclocker is high praise indeed!
    Solaris17 says thanks.
