OCZ's major contribution to the technological world has been in the form of memory and cooling. A short time back, power supplies were added to their repertoire, and we have been duly impressed with their quality and versatility. OCZ have established themselves as a company that makes enthusiast parts for people who care about performance. However their latest scion is in the form of high end graphics cards and it seems OCZ is intent on making its mark in this field as well.

Although we did a round up of 8800's some time ago, there have been several more recent cards hitting the market. As they are released, we intend to keep reviews of card comparisons up to date. Today, we implement this promise with our analysis of the OCZ GeForce 8800 GTX.

These days, companies are coming out with faster parts by producing cards that have faster memory, core, and shader clock speeds. Gamers who want even higher performance and don't mind spending a little extra money can get a card that's overclocked out of the box. This saves them the trouble of doing it themselves, with the added protection of a warranty, as well. Until we're able to round up all of these cards we want to establish how overclocking effects performance by increasing memory, core, and shader clock speeds. Is there a significant benefit for the price?

    is it a combination of warranty and guarantee? Reply

    Sorry, I typed the word for the person to whom a warranty is given, thus the spell checker failed me. Thanks for the catch. Reply
