    This is for any one with any graphics card that he/she feels that it has served well beyond your expectations, should include mostly if you were very successful in tweaking and getting more performance out of your card with stability and reliability.

    Please post screen shots, videos etc.

    I start with mine, it has served me well and is still serving me very well no complains over clocks like a champ.

    Here is my GTX460 1GB Hall Of Fame Edition

    My good old 3850 AGP... still serving in the front lines. Can play BF3 fine at 1280×800 with low-med settings

    Recently I oced it to 824/1197 (stock 3850 are 669/828) AND lowered the voltage to 0.974v (stock was 1.154v) :D

    I can't believe it still holds its own these days... but I guess that says more of the current state of the PC games industry than the GPU industry. :ohwell:

    My BFG gtx 260 on stock voltage would do 750 core ( for benching) ran it at 705 core and1250 ram. It can still just play bf3 when over clocked. Still runs most games fine in my htpc.

    Due to this card not having voltage controls i would game with 705 core but benchmark @ 750.

    I'm not sure. I had lowered the voltage before the OC and found out that giving it more volts didn't change the maximium OC so I left it at 0.974v. The only thing is that I had to lower my memory OC from 1215 to 1197, hardly a sacrifice.

    I've OCed it above 824 but after a few seconds of 3D load I kept getting VPU recovery errors (screen turns black for a while and then the driver re-starts the GPU) so the GPU can take it but there's something else holding it back. I think that the PCIe to AGP bridge chip is the culprit, maybe it can't cope with the amount of instructions? I put a small copper heatsink on it but that didn't change things. :(

    With the V6000 the card is a monster.3 slots :eek:

    Yes, that is the consensus. For my card it didn't work out like that though.

    I lowered the voltage to 0.974v and it ran stable at the overdrive limits (800/1000) so I left it like that.

    Earlier this year I tried to OC it with afterburner to bypass the OD limits and kept hitting that 824 wall no matter the voltage. I managed to get it to 878 stable in 2d (desktop, flash, video playback) but after 10-15 seconds of 3d load it would get the VPU recovery... then it would run for another 10-15 seconds, and so on and so on... I decreased the OC until I got to 824 (well, 823.7 actually)

    Giving the card 1.174v allowed me to put the RAM at 1215 but I preferred to leave it at 0.974v

    Still 824/1197 is what, a ~30% overclock performance wise? (+23% GPU, +44% mem) How many cards can get that?

    I know this one is a very new card... but my Master Card/1st card (in my sli Set up) deserves to be here....

    This card is a EVGA GTX 680 Vanilla (Reference) version. With it only being able to have a max voltage of 1.175v I have hit 1306 Core Mhz and 1644Mhz on Mem. (This is stable) and I haven't found the top Clock yet. But the fact that it does those clocks stable is amazing. Most people are unable to hit clocks of 1300Mhz. Most people on stock versions of the card can only hit about 1250Mhz (if not lower then that.)

    It's quit Possible I will post back later with higher clocks on this for sure Historic GFX card!

    Here is the Proof :)

    I have my OC at standard +100 +300 and +32%, but I have seen the 680 push it to 1230 automatically in demanding games... still never went over 67 celsius, though that is due to my fan profile being very high.

    Hey TPU members, i would like to use a nice format to display the members in the club GFX Hall Of fame club, but i have fallen shot of ideas of how to do it, so if anyone can make one for me then post it so i can use it, and give me instructions on how to implement it here.

    Things i would like displayed are: member name, number of entered cards, brand of card eg Radeon, Geforce or any other brand if any. if there will be other things required will be implemented as we go along.

    so please TPU members help with this. Thanks in advance.

    Maybe you'd want to include additional details, like clock speeds or something.
