hey guys, I'm getting a GTX 295 next week or so and was wondering should I pick a certain manufacture or just whatever's cheapest?
PNY-$505
eVGA, BFG, Zotac-$550
I'll post scores after I get the card! Hope to join the 20K club soon!:D
I haven't owned an EVGA card yet, but I hear nothing but good things about them.

Plus they have this awesome utility to regulate voltage and stuff, really cool from what i've seen.

Yeah but you can use the utility on any reference card with a little BIOS flash ;) EVGA are an excellent company, I have only used them once simply because I find others often overclock better, so I tend to stick with either of Palit, XFX or MSI.

No not necessarily, if I see a good deal with shall we say, a less renown company, i tend to do an aweful lot of googling to see if I can get any info on overclocking success to give me a measure of what they can do, of course they do vary..... as we know it can be a bit of a lottery, unless i was certain that a certain card would give me more overclocking headroom (which is rare).... I would just go for the cheapest providing it has a half decent warranty.

Just woke up again.. lol... I guess I'm getting sick?? I'll be putting it in, in about 20... :roll:

Edit:

So far here is what I have. Stock clocks on the CPU. And my mild oc of one card...



Sli Stock everything



Next will be Sli at oc clocks.

I gotta say, so far it's looking good! At 3.5 on the Q67 I got over 21k.. This is still at stock clocks on the CPU!!!

Loving this Chip!

Well, If you look ^^ I've shown stock, and sli stock.. Now, I got my OC for the night!



I'll do the Chip oc come tomorrow. Never do that stuff when it gets past midnight! :roll: Learned my lesson! But, I got about 2k more to go to beat my score I have now on sli.. I just can't believe this is just at stock on the CPU!

With the Q67, the sweet spot was around 3.5 for a single 280, and 3.8 when in sli.. Then anything over that was you ocing the CPU, but getting nothing extra out of it.. So, it was time for an upgrade.. But, I was able to grab this for $200 so, why not this, and then wait to go I7 in a few months?

Q9550 overclocked at 4.0ghz performs very close to the new intel chips. It would be a waste of money in my opinion to upgrade from a Q9550 to a I7 920. Several reviews also agree. However, having said that, that philosophy never stopped me from wasting money. It may have slowed my spending, but there is something to be said for having the fastest set up available.

Damn... what kinda cooling do you need to get a Q9550 upto 4ghz?

I just got a E3110 for $140 and a Q9550 was only $40 more. I went with the cheaper option as i thought i'd get a higher clock. As it is i can only get 3.33ghz 24/7 workable. 4.7 is ok but not stable. My motherboard wont go over 1.6v and the NB can't handle the FSB :(

Damn... what kinda cooling do you need to get a Q9550 upto 4ghz?

I just got a E3110 for $140 and a Q9550 was only $40 more. I went with the cheaper option as i thought i'd get a higher clock. As it is i can only get 3.33ghz 24/7 workable. 4.7 is ok but not stable. My motherboard wont go over 1.6v and the NB can't handle the FSB :(
not much with E0 stepping they do 3.9 to 4.2ghz all the time here is one now http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115041

Just realized they were Q9400's E0 stepping, New. $180 compared to $220 at my local store. I'd guess they'd overclock about the same?
I feel like the time i bought my 4850, leaving the store, i saw the sole 4870 in the display cabinet for $10 bucks more! They would have taken it out of the cabinet and sold it to me like many other thing they have.

[Edit] Checked again Q9550's $200. $60 more than E3110 - ah well i gotta try not to spend my money with the new baby on they way.

Q9550 overclocked at 4.0ghz performs very close to the new intel chips. It would be a waste of money in my opinion to upgrade from a Q9550 to a I7 920. Several reviews also agree. However, having said that, that philosophy never stopped me from wasting money. It may have slowed my spending, but there is something to be said for having the fastest set up available.
The chip should be near that come tonight! Just gotta read up on 780i and the Q9550.. SLI Zone FTW! :rockout:
But, I'm with you... It won't stop me, just slow me down... I gotta have someting to tinker with on my weekends off!! :p



if you dont install it i will fly down their and make you install it i used to live right around your area so dont think i dont know were you live. I will find you.

:roll: The chips in!!! Now, I just have to clock the ballz off it! :pimp:
You can fly down still.. Weather is great! :rolleyes: Water is cold!! :cry:
