xPC and XFX 8600GTS

I replaced my ELSA 7800GT by a XFX 8600GTS in my watercooled xPC.

Here are a few pics and a comparison between the scores of my previous 7800GT and the new 8600GTS in 3DMarck2006

I took the standard XTX 8600GTS at 675MHz, not the XXX version OCed at 730MHz





the 2 cards side by side, one excellent thing is that the 8600GTS is smaller than the 7800GT thus it fits even better in the xPC



After I stripped the fan on the 8600GTS (voided the warranty, but don't care much about that)



Back in place in the xPC



Up and running in Vista



Score 3DMark2006 7800GT in WinXP:



Score 3DMark2006 8600GTS WinXP:



Pretty good improvement and I think I ran the test on my 7800GT at 1024x768 while I ran the test at 1280x1024 with the 8600GTS.

As for the temp, they seem to be slightly lower than with my 7800GT even if I just reapplied the AS5

Something`s not right here, or I am confudled.

I got 3dM06 score 3563 off a 3800x2 @ 2.5 + 7600GT (611/1.56) friday.

Does this suggest that replacing the 7600 would produce a score around 4800 ?

I would have thought me changing out the 3800x2 for an Intel c2d would give it the same boost.

and here is the score of the 8600GTS running at 1024x768:



Basically 2000 more than with the 7800GT!

@Rastalovich: Well nothing has changed in my system except the video card so I suppose that replacing your 7600GT by a 8600GTS would drastically improve your score too!

Also Rstalovich, I am not sure, but i think the x2 beats the PD 930, may have some influence on the score...

Woaw I can now play all my games in 1280x1024, with max details etc... and yet smooth and fast without lag in the frame rate while with my 7800GT I could only play at 1024x768... FarCry, Stalker etc...

And it is damn cool card, 38/39C idle and 44/45C after 2 hours of FarCry! I was even surprised to see the card temp remained at 40C during the 3DMark2006 test!

Totally satisfied with the upgrade I must say

Hey youpla, if your from the USA/Canada, and register your card within the first 30 days of purchasing it. XFX's warranty now supports "Modding" your video card, volt mod/replacing heatsink/WAtercooling etc..

Pretty good IMO

Where did you find this out? I need too read some T&Cs.

Thats worth the extra cash over the other manufactures.

Edit: And hope they extend it too the UK...
