I'm curious what you guys think on factory overclocked cards, are they less reliable? Are they better overclockers overall? Is the increased power drain a big issue?
The reason i ask is that i'm going to buy a GTX260 next week but I can't decide between:
The XFX Black edition 216:
Or the EVGA Standard 216:
They're both the same price, but because the only card i've ever had a problem with (see link here
) was an OC'ed BFG i'm slightly hesitant to go for the XFX (Who i've heard have pretty bad support).
Also I quite like the idea of step-up but I doubt the new GTX260 in Jan' will be that much better, so it's probably not that relevant.
Also, i'll be getting a Corsair TX650 to power it, that should be ok right?
