haha thank god i didnt spend 500 for nothing... i figured there was a reason just didnt know wat it was. also while i have everyone's attention, (who wouldnt be tempted to click on this thread with that title lol) how high could i get the OC to for the SC version? iv seen another one that newegg was selling that was 837MHz core clock but it looked like the same card. so would it be as easy as setting core clock to 837MHz or did they add like a diff fan or something?
