Default Re: Argh! Dissapointed with GTX275 clocking...

If you can take it back and get your money back ,then I would go to,and look at the Evga GTX 280 Recertified for $224.99 with free shipping ,or a GTX 260-216 $169 or better yet you can get a XFX recertified HD 4890 with a year warranty for $169.99 and they have been overclocked from 900nhz to 1000mhz on core and 1000mhz (4000GDDR5) to 1100mhz ( 4400mhz GDDR5) and they are faster then the GTX 280 in nearly ever case.But overclocking is always the luck of the draw ,you may get a great one and you may get one that just bearly makes it stated clocks.I disagree ,IMO if you could take it back i would get a ATI HD 4890,they are great cards and have great prices for the performance you get., and faster then a GTX 275.and they are quiet a few under $200
