Just got my 7600gt...questions

  1. okay, I was happy to get my 7600gt and Oblivion delivered today! My computer isn't here right now so I'll have to wait until monday to play with my new toys :(

    Anyways, instead of the slick black heatsink shown on most of evga's cards (including my model), I got the green one. Is there a difference at all? The evga site shows their stock clocked 7600 with the green one, and the one I got (580/1500 CO version) with the black and white one. Is there any reason for concern?

    Well maybe I'll be replacing it anyways, since I've heard the fan is really loud on this card. Are there any cooling options for the 7600gt yet? I've heard good things about arctic cooling but I guess none of those would be compatible?

    Also, is it better to use the drivers included with the card or the newest versions from nvidia?

    edit: thanks for moving the thread. sorry, I'm a little slow :bounce:

    Howdy up north.

    It's a good idea to start with square one.
    OOB {out of box} should, at the very least give a base line reference for temps and performance.
    After which you'll know if any mods or changes are needed.

    Have fun with your new equip!
