So the 9800GT's are like $5 or $10 more than the 8800GT's now, and I saw a review of the Asus Ultimate 9800GT which actually keeps up with the 4850 because of it's 125Mhz higher core clock, and then OC'd RAM. It's got an 8800GTS G92 core or something too... So I saw a 9800GT by Evga and I'm just wondering how good she is at OCing, because it's like $35 more than the Ultimate. Anyone have one???

I have a 9600GT by Evga, which is factory overclocked... and I'm beginning to wonder if that's a good thing.

I'm having some lockup issues under OpenGL that make me think there could be a hardware issue with it.  I've never had a problem with any other nVidia chipset, but am probably going to have to buy a similar card just to prove to myself that I've either identified a driver issue or it's the hardware.  This first encounter with Evga has not left me with a good impression.  :\

 

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

I too can attest to the quality of evgas customer service and warranty. I've done more than 1 rma with them... it was quick, painless and they even offered cross shipping free.

Their step up program is also nice.
