That's true, but no-one wants a card that'll be unreliable. I'm not a fan of pre-OC'd cards. The only reason I got these is it's all that was available at the time. If you're gonna manually OC the cards anyway, it's a waste of money.

This is something worth paying the premium for imo. Very good overclocks which is better than EVGA'S overpriced tat.Don't care about the 2 year warranty as I would not plan on having the card 2 years anyway

I saw this too on overclockers, couldnt believe the clocks for the prce compared to EVGA SSC well overpriced.

Recently the prices of all 280 in the uk esp at overclockers has come down, no way i was gonna pay 500GBP+ for that card.

I was seriously considering the Leadtek Extreme 280 then relised too good to be true, could be a mis print, im not too sure with that company how reliable the card will be.

I them thought EVGA SSC 280, too overpriced and since i have a BFG OC2 8800GTX (excellent card) i might as well wait for the BFG OC2 280 or 4870X2 by Sapphire, i need some thing for gaming at 1920*1080 1080p.

Nice clocks on that card it will fly for the most part at 1920x1200.
