Default Re: EVGA step up for my GTX280 SSC?

The step-up was the reason I paid a little extra for the EVGA, will not do that again.
Sorry you weren't happy. It worked out great for me. In November I bought a vanilla 280 GTX, overclocked it to faster than FTW speeds, and got 2 months of great gaming out of it. Now I'm stepping up to the vanilla GTX 285 for $6 (the price of shipping). I'm expecting to get speeds of at least 720/1700/2800.
