Well, it is your choice.
if it's not running the GPU at it's normal operating frequencies then how do I make it do so?
Have a look at this article: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...king_one&num=1
This is overclocking. That means: It may
be possible that your particular chip may run at 8800 Ultra speed, it may also be possible that it fails when you overclock 20MHz, there is no guarantee.
Regarding the RAM, which quality your RAM actually has is in no way dependent on the GPU, it is dependent on which RAM your specific card manufacturer has chosen to use. In the link you gave you will also see that the 8800 Ultra uses significantly more power, which means that it also needs a better heatsink. Are you sure that your heatsink can handle this?
But anyways, it is your hardware, do what you want.
