    Default 8800gt OC or 8800gt alpha d extreme...

    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

    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..?
    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...
