To simply get another one:D The folks at buyaib.com sent me a LE 8500 rather then a OEM 8500. Does that 20Mhz clock speed really make a difference you ask? <looks at brent> Yep. It's a great card just I'm having trouble getting it's full potential out. Well I haven't even tried since some folks at rage3d.com say it's not even worth it. That and they sent me the wrong card. Ohh well. Wish me luck.

get the retail version! 275/275

i got it it overclocked to 310/310 but it was slightly unstable, so i backed it down to 300/300 and it worked great!

ask about the best one or about flashing to the regular 8500s bios to get its clock speed at rage3d's forums at www.rage3d.com
