which one is better? i ran both on my HPa832n (pentium4 3.20x2 w/ HTT modded to 650 w power and 3gig ddr ram) but other than the gt oc flickering more at 690 core clock (the alpha dog gets a little skippy anywhere near 680 so i ran it at 675 w/ no flickering) the frame rates are two close to call but i don't know witch one to keep and wich one to sell... the alpha does run alot cooler but i think thats the 65mhz octweak on the gt OC since it is supposed to run at 625 core...
also i'm a little confused as to why i'm not getting the great fps i keep reading about on either one... both get averages under 21fps on crysis no matter how i tweak unless i drop everything to "low" and res at 800x600... then i can get 27 to 31 average... any ideas on both theses "Q"s would be appreciated:bdaybiggr

because ur cpu suks dik..no offence, but ur being limited by ur single core CPU. Of course u should keep ur OC edition, since ull prob get more fps in most games. But at the same time, the OC will do u no good cause ur cpu is holding it back.

um...don't hold back now... what do u really think of my processor..?:clap:
thanks dude i guess i'll have to get one of those bundles though cause my motherboard is design for this cpu and hp says the ram cannot be xms or dual so i think i'm gonna start from scratch and sli these 8800's...
