Different cards, but I had two EVGA GTX 260's one super clocked, and one super super clocked. Whilst they both could clock to within ~20MHz of each other, the SSC was more stable at higher clocks, and (somehow) produced higer fps at the same clocks as the SC.

So it depends how broke you are, if $15 is a lot of money...

Though here, $15 is £9.10, so that's like 1.5 gallons of petrol, or 6 uncooked cheap range chicken breasts, or 1 adult (not 3D, more money) cinema ticket.

On the bright side you can get 13Lt of cheapo cider from for $9.10

I wish it did. My SC has VID of 1.062 and I've seen lower on non SCs. It struggles with 950 MHz and runs hot.

Edit: What's worse? Evga refused to give me a straight answer. I kept asking and have a string of conflicting emails from them tho, lol.
