It all depends Pethegreat. Like I use a leadtek card. It has a very large and well ventilated heatsink of copper which is actually larger that most like 7800GTX heatsinks. I can use an auto overclocker to bring it up pretty high let alone doing it manually.

i oced mine to 435/875. seems to work fine. had it at 450/900 but heat was becoming an issue. i got this cooler:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835124006 i get a 3dmark03 score of 11,xxx. not bad for a 170$ total card. now its even cheaper at newegg.com i don't really need to get 70,80 fps. hell the human eye can only see 60. light bulbls flicker at 60 cycles per secon (60hz), and you cant even tell. so sure i could waste my money on an expensive card, or i could just use as little as possible for a good value card that could take on tjose expensive cards anyday. maybe it can't beat a 7800 or another 400 - 600 dollar card, but i cant tell the difference, and unless your eye can see light bulbs flickering, i dont think you guys can either. pwned.gifdam pwned by science. thats gotta hurt.:smokin:

see but what we mean is being able to increase the graphics quality enormously while staying above 60 and above 60 becasue we can have a little room for it to drop in intense battles. Also Ibe heard some people can see the diffrence in 60hz on a computer screen compared to 72 or 75 hertz.

what are you talking about with the refresh rates? do refresh rates of monitors have any effect on how good yo can run a game?

Yes, you don't notice a differnce down to about 25fps if you don't play games. The reason people pay $500 on a card is so it will last them a long time and play games on massive resloutuions. Fighter piolets can see at upto 240fps, the human eye usualy does 12.

yes and i guess you won't be back to tell us that you burnt that card out overclocking it as much as you have either. "Those that burn twice as bright burn half as long". :0wned: by common sense. when you spend another 170 bucks on another card that lasts you a year do to the ocing you are doing, you will have spent as much as anyone else has.

The good thing is ...some of us can afford our 400 dollar cards, and our 2k systems and our 22k cars and our 200k houses. And are abit more refined when it comes to the opposite sex. LOL
