My 5970 maxes every game (well, apart from Metro and the like) at 2560 x 1440, so I don't even see why you'd need to overclock it. Especially with one 1080p monitor, which is a waste on a 5970 anyhow.
no its not, i can't run SC2 very smoothly with like 8x AA. same thing with Crysis 2 DX 11

SC2 will be maxed out with a 5970 easily, it's your processor that is making the game run slow, and don't give me anything, SC2 will kill even 2500k/2600ks at 5GHz in a lot of battles.

How much would shipping to Denmark cost you and how much do you want for the card minus shipping?

This is what I was expecting to hear from someone. 30mhz OC on that card should make no noticable difference.
