well, got my saphire 9800 pro and i installed it. when i launch the overclockin software, it says my sore is running at 370 and the mem is running at 340!!! isnt that super slow? the site said this thing runs at 800+! did i do something wrong?

Itchy and Scratchy #1325,Itchy plays Scratchy's skeleton like a xylophone; strikes the same rib twice but clearly 2 different notes sound. are we to believe that this is some sort of magic xylophone?

The speeds sound right, remember that 340 Mhz ddr memory is considered to be 680 Mhz effective.

800+ memory would be the 9800XT, which runs faster than a 9800 PRO.

Saphhire 9800 Pro should be at 380/340(Which is 680 DDR). Technically, really 378/338

XT runs at 412/365(730 DDR).

So yeah, your numbers sound jsut about right

Yeah, I frickin love when it says "Holy [-peep-]!"

I turn up my speakers and do it at LANs and everyone comes to watch my system pawn the [-peep-] out of ut2k3/2k4.

Me: are you saying I can't provide?
Me: cause I know I can provide.
Me: oh and I can provide money too;)
Rachel:): why do we need money when we can just stay in our room and have sex all day?
