Testing Procedure:

All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows XP Professional build 2600 with Service Pack 2 and DirectX 9.0c. All benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. No overclocking was done on the video card during any of this review. We did disable the Firewire, and LAN features if found in the BIOS menu for all the testing completed during this review. No overclocking was done on the video card and NVIDIA 91.33 drivers were used on the XFX GeForce 7600GS video card.  The memory was run with a 667MHz divider at 4-4-4-12 timings for both stock and overclocked benchmarking at 2.2Vdimm. The above photo show’s an ATI card, but an XFX GeForce 7600GS was used. Let’s move on and take a look at the testing!
