    My nVidia 8800 GTS (G92) is on it's way out the door already. I am currently looking into buying

    GTX 280 or GTX 260 (I've owned the 9800 GTX *x2* and wasn't a big fan)


    Anyways I am looking at waterblocks for the GTX 200 series cards. Currently I have a dedicated setup just for the GPU


    ~~~Watercooling~~~
    Swiftech MCRES-MICRO Reservoir
    Swiftech MCR220-QP Dual 120mm Radiator Black
    Swiftech MCP655 Water Pump

    This was build out based on opinions which I respected highly
    http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?t=564738

    Anyways any feedback would be great guys! I am looking for budget here

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814133229
    PNY VCGGTX260XPB GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit
    $249.99 shipped!


    So if i can get a full-block or partial block so be it


    My 8800GTS *G92* has the Swiftech MCW60-R VGA Waterblock along with the Swiftech MC14 Copper Heatsinks

    The card works great but I can't really overclock it that much so i am thinking I am ready to move with another card.

    You say the 8800 GTS (G92) card works great at the bottom of your thread, and then at the top you say its on its way out. How do you know its on its way out?

    Personally if you dont need to upgrade yet I would keep what you have. I have the 8800 GTS 640Mb (G80) and it still does most things pretty well.

    Otherwise I think the water cooling looks good, my only question around PNY would be warranty, I've clicked on the link but cant see the card but I'm assuming it doesn't have a water block installed on it already and you'll need to add this?

    I think he either means he's selling it or getting rid of it. "Out the door" I could be wrong.

    i have the dtek fuzion gpu block and their unisink and it works great on mine. it is also universal. you do not need to get the unisink but it is not expensive and it works well.

    Wow that's some freakin monster clocking you have there! My shadercores start to artifact at 1458 =/ My ram and GPU feel like they have lots more room on them for push. Stupid shader core holding back my GPU!

    Thanks ! And the more impressive, it's an oc without vmod at all.

    Even if your shaders aren't good as gpu, you can desynchronize them to push core to the limit like me.
