Re: Graphics Cards
Use the Optimal Settings, I wouldn't recommend going much higher.
When they make different cards, sometimes they will pre-overclock the card, and they have different games/software in their boxes and sometimes have custom heatsink fans on them.
If your going to be spending that much, I'd wait for DX10 cards to be released and then think about it again.
If I help you, I welcome Reputation Points to show your thanks. I won't forget it!
