Quatro De Mayo

My new video card came today. It's freakin' huge! I installed it and powered up with no problems. It's an Evga 8800 GTS 640 MB card, so it's clocked at the default speeds, but thanks to NVidia's Ntune utility, I have it overclocked to 520 Mhz core, 804 Mhz memory. I will probably go further someday, but for now I'm happy with the performance.

Speaking of performane, LOTRO looks fantastic with this card installed. I am able to crank up most of the graphics settings to maximum and it still runs smoothly.

Also, I suckered my wife in to buying LOTRO tonight, so she is in the process of making a character now. It's handy to have a built in MMORPG partner.
