If you are looking to upgrade your video card, there are so many options available. We are going to take a look at one of BFG Tech’s top PCI-E cards, the 6800 GT OC. How did it make out in our tests? Is the card worth it, with the next gen on the way?

Synthetic Tests – 3D Mark 2001 and Aquamark3

This is a new card, and these are old synthetic tests. Of course they are, but they are still great to use to get a decent grasp of how they compare to other cards. They are good tests to see how well the card should work with DX8.1 – DX9 classic games.

3D Mark 2001 first introduced itself shortly after DirectX 8.1 was being used, so the tests are based off of that version. This 3D Mark introduced Vertex Shading and Shader Model 1.4. Aquamark3 is based on DirectX 9, and is much different than the 3D Marks. It’s comprised of different graphic capabilities, with tests such as Dynamic Occlusion Culling, High Particle Count and Large Scale Vegetation Rendering.

Stock: 370/1000 – OC: 410/1100

Both score sets turned out with great results. Nothing to complain about here.
