You clearly haven't read too far into that thread. If you did you'd know I
tried two different cards. i tried each card in several different
motherboards, each with a different chipset. I tried with several different
power supplies, and different combinations of power supplies (two of which
are 400+ watts, an Antec and an Enermax) and motherboards. Several different
RAM sticks and configurations on each board. I tried about 15 different
drivers. I even tried a fresh install of windows on one of the systems. I
tried several different monitors. I tried everything that could possibly
have anything to do with the problem, and then a crapload of things that
couldn't have anything to do with it just to rule them out. Sure, I suppose
it's possible I got two defective cards, but that's very unlikely. If that
is the case that I got two defective cards... Well that speaks very lowly
for BFG Tech.
So all I did was say that their 6800 OC card is junk, after trying
everything under the sun to make it work right including exchanging it for
another board. The particular problem I was having is also a known problem
with boards using poor quality analog filters, and I ruled out everything
except a hardware problem specific to the card. Yet you say all I did was
"say that BFG sucked and their card sucked". If that's what you honestly
think, you truly haven't a clue...
Anyhow, Are you suing an analog CRT? If so what resolution and refresh rate
are you using on your desktop? Is the image crystal clear at
? How about 85Hz at 1600x1200? Can you tell a difference
in clarity/sharpness at those high resolutions between 60Hz and 85Hz? I'm
interested to know if the GT cards work well, as if they do it may be a
bargain to get one of those since they are guaranteed to overclock and have
nice heatsink setups on them (I was very impressed with the heatisnk/fan
setup on the 6800 OC).
