    Angry Be wary of the 7800GT!

    careful! i recently bought the best 7800GT i could find by eVGA...was clocked at 470 mhz... overheats and locks up at 57+ degrees. the heatsink seems to be working fine....my case has 3 120mm fans, card gets plenty of air....but i had to underclock it to 448 for it work properly and not give me any lock ups

    Howdy.

    I'd say that you might of done a little bit of damage..
    If it's still only new then get your girlfriend or some female to return it to the shop with the receipt, and get them to exchange it or something, the dude's behind the counter will 99% of the time will either exchange it, or give a refund..
    Well it happens a lot over here in Aus, so why not.

    Hey Front, you watch the cricket match on Sunday, we whipper you Jokes, was a great game. I will give the card another week because it seems to be running fine now. Just need a program to check the fan speed and temperature.
