    my r9800pro 256M arrived today.

    it hits 438MHz core (r9800XT overdrive speed) and at least 380MHz ram, I havn't finished maxing out the ram, but its completely artifact free right now.

    r9800XT runs at 438/380 when in overdrive, right?

    Yes I guess that is one way to look at it, nice overclock! However if you use something other than Overdrive I wonder what it will get.

    not most r9800pro 256Ms though. Most of them clock much lower than the 128M versions.

    anyways, I only paid 330$ for it. thats why its so great, I'm not really talking about the card, I'm talking about the price :)

    fair point, can't say i knew that the 256mb ones clocked lower but i know that to be true on ti4200's generally so its no surprise

    watch newegg every day for a few weeks, they throw one up every few weeks. (But only ONE at a time, its a pain becuase people buy em really fast)


    acctually I shouldnt say much lower, just like 10MHz lower.

    Thats a good price considering these guys get $462.00 and there prices are the same as NewEgg.

    http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=320742


    And NewEgg gets $298.00 for the 128mb

    agree, overdrive is a party pooper, you end up with little to no core o/c when it kicks in.... (benchmark/games) alot of people diapointed with the way it works as i have heard it

    yea but htey didnt change much.. just a internal thermal diode (temp sensor), incresed the clock rate the rest os software/drivers ,
