    I realised the need for a Clubhouse for Nvidia Videocard Users for troubleshooting and new product releases etc.

    I'm not a fanboi or anything, just see the need.

    Let me start out by saying i own a 7900GS, keep it mostly regular but overclock it to go bench.

    Members who want to join please submit a GPU-Z link, which is available here. Please provide as much info as possible about your card (brand, clocks (stock and bench), memory, cooler). If you would like to include an image you can as well. If any one of you guys are running non proprietary drivers could you please state which one and which version and how you found it.

    revision one of the club sig is here

    Windows XP 32-bit
    Windows XP 64-bit
    Windows Vista 32-bit

    I hvae owned an MX440 (i think that was it), Gigabyte FX5200 (stock), BFG nVidia GeForce 6800GS OC (412/1.12) w/ 16 pipes (unlocked), an my current BFG 8800GTS 640MB 600/100.

    I have only owned one ATI card and that was a 7000 series card that I hated. Haven t used ATI since.

    I edited my post to provide card specs.

    Happy nVidia owner here too. Geforce 2, Geforce 4 MX440, Geforce 4 ti4200, and now a Geforce 7600GS.

    I have owned a few ATi cards in the past and they all died within a year.

    PS: I should make a nvidia owners sigpic. hmmm ....

    Well I got the standard specs here. It runs at 575/700, 256-bit, 3.0 Shaders. Extras of which: HDR, Intellisample 4.0, UltraShadow II, PureVideo, CineFX 4.0, PowerMizer 6.0, Transparency Antialiasing. I know I can get some serious stuff after clocking this baby...I don't have the machine at the moment...had to ship it back to AlienWare for some fixing..turned out to be faulty so more details to come :)

    I can always change the font to something more readable.

    The change would have to go through [I.R.A]_FBi though.

    Bliss !!!!!!!!!!

    :respect:I got now what appears to be a very rare Gainward Bliss 7800GS+ 512 Special Edition Golden Sample Go's Like Hell http://www.mwave.com.au/newAU/mwaveAU/productdetail.asp?SKU=42020665
    It's got 20, 20, and 7 pipes and I got my '06{4326} bench to run thru at 585/1600
    I know it's not a great score, but this thing has got some real power hiding inside, 8xAA and 16xAF, X-HD, UltraShadow II Technology, CineFX 4.0, IntelliSample 4.0, "The fourth-generation Intellisample technology introduces two new antialiasing modes—transparency adaptive supersampling and transparency adaptive multisampling—which increase the quality and performance of antialiasing." demo's are really cool!
    I like the sig banner, but it is somewhat hard to read the smaller text.
    Any way from what I've found this is like a Rev. 3 of that line.
    I started out back in the early 90's with Matrox, had a G400, a Mellinium and added a M3D daughter card with an xtra memory pack installed to it.
    Then had 2-3 Creative Labs Nv cards, one of which I still have as a backup a Ti4200.
    Tried a Gainward FX5200, but it didn't have VIVO, so I return'd it.
    My favorite was a Leadtek/Winfast A380 VIVo, man that thing was the shit, but a faulty fan in a PSU killed it, and my previous AI-7
    The previous leader to this Bliss is a BFG 7800GS OC, clocks 500/1500 maxed out features AA,AF ect. had 3rd place in 7800 class ::
    http://service.futuremark.com/orb/resultanalyzer.jsp?projectType=14&XLID=0&UID=8887169
    Compared to the Bliss maxed out:

    Here's the thread I was reporting in http://www.bleedinedge.com/forum/showthread.php?p=240958#post240958
    I've added some OCZ500 2048 EBPE-K and gained about 30 points, but need to tweak since it's disabled PAT, and will NOT run using the 667 strap:banghead:

    Although GPU-z didn't report it correctly, here's the stock clock Everest Pro report

    I've almost always had an Nvidia card. I remember having an old Geforce 5200FX, a GeForce 6800XT, and then a (malfunctioning) x1800XL (ATi), and now this 8500GT. The performance of this card is roughly equivilent to the 6800XT.
