Hello, i bought this card recently:
I needed a 6600GT godamn quick and several reviews said this was the best option for general use.
See...I wanted to overclock a tad but not manually as i don't really know how, this is why i bought this card Because...It's a "Gainward Golden Sample" and therefore, (quoting the manual) "If you purchased a 'Golden Sample' version of your display adapter find "Enhanced Mode Settings"". Which are basically safe overclocked settings which'll hold the warrantee in the program that runs the card call 'Expertool'.
But, the problem is that they're not there and when i try and install them from the disk the button to do so is greyed out so i can't click it.
...I'm just p***ed off cos i bought this card for that reason, and also because it is supposed to have LED's in the fan, but that was changed without notice!!! Tried emailing Gainward, they don't reply...assholes.
(appologies for obsenities i'm just v angry!)
It plays games ok, but i just want to get more out of it and now regret buying something like the BFG tech 6600GT...would that have been better?
Does anyone have any experiance with gainward cards and Expertool and how to use it with these advanced settings and whatnot.
...Is this card actually any good or should i sell it and get another 6600GT??
