Default Re: Over-volting with MSI Afterburner

Yes.... I am like you, I don't keep a card for that long anyway. I've had a 7800 GTX for about 3 years, and I have (but its only being used as a backup / CAD machine) a 6800 GT (softmodded to a Quadro 4000 which I've had for about 5 years..... either way though neither are a "main" machine of mine and I definitely wouldn't be heartbroken if they died.

I don't actually expect to keep my rig for much more than 1 or 2 more years.... the whole thing will then be retired to a file / media / game server at which point it'll become a LAN party spare... The GTX 470 was really just to tide me over until I do a full rebuild in a year or so
