To test this GPU, I ran it through several synthetic and gaming benchmarks to ascertain its performance under stock and overclocked conditions as well as comparing it to other GPUs in similar price brackets.
The PC that I used to test this card was as follows:
C2D E6600 @ 2.7ghz
Asus P5W-DH Deluxe
OCZ Special Ops. @ 900mhz
Tagan Silver Power 600w
The other graphics cards that I compared to the GTS were: MSI 8800GTS 320mb, Galaxy 8600GT, Galaxy 8600GT Overclocked and an x1950 Pro.
