  1. I just bought a 9700pro for £225. im pretty damn happy about it - call of duty is looking totally awesome on it :)

    im about to overclock it - any suggestions about what i should be expecting to hit with it? current is 325 and 310 for memory. just using the stock heatsink but i may get a better one if it makes a major difference .

    card if a hercules 3d prophet 9700pro with 128mb. i know that 225 isnt the totally best cheapest price on the planet, but its a better price than the 9800pro (by £40) and i like to be a little retro - been admiring the beauties for 12 months :)

    but is that stable with no artifacts? Run 3DMark2001/03 and if its all stable and has no artifacts you have a pretty good OC. I dont think aftermarket cooling will make much of a difference.

    you can also test artifacts with your radeon card with the Rendering with Natural Light Demo on your Catalyst CD.

    Cool, I love my 9700 pro. A very good buy IMHO. unfortunatly my overclock wasn't too impresive, but it still chews up 3d gfx and spits out solid FPS.

    i paid 225 inc delivery. that 9800pro is 248 inc vat and you need to pay delivery on top.

    you can wipe up your piss now, if you like :D

    Be nice boys or I'm going to have to remove BOTH you cards. I'm about due for an upgrade anyway. ;)

    I wouldn't buy anything from those w**kers. I got a defective Radeon AIW 9700 Pro from that outfit about 7 months ago, and I sent it back. I'm still waiting for my refund (credit card company is dealing with it). I bought a replacement card (9800 Pro) elsewhere, and I wouldn't go back to that company again.

    You got a defective one like it was broken and didnt work when u put it in. or it was cracked when you opened the box?

    read my post in the forums about my total F**ked 9700 pro which is still kicking away for some reason but its pissing me off !

    (WTF! 9700pro Screwed up)
