Buying story's gtx 560 ti hawk twin frozr II an sapphire 6950 1 gb.

I like to share my buying experience because it took a lot of effort to get what I was looking for.
I bought a lot of folding cards and rma it because of the errors.

1st Card I bought was msi 560 twin frozer II.
It gave me not smooth gameplay (like mouse lag you possibly get with v-sync on) but the fps was good. I tried everything read the net but there wasn't anything that could help. The gpu temp was good but when I felt with my finger on the card itself, it wasn't possible to touch it more than 2 seconds.

2nd Card was the 560 ti hawk. I thought it was working on the oc msi shop specs. But when I looked at the gpu-z specs I was reading the core speed on 823 MHz instead off 950 MHz.
Here is the msi topic so you can read the whole story:

The amazing thing was that the card was preforming outstanding on my computer. Now I was sure that my suspicions of any other bad hardware in my computer wasn’t right. It was fast and directly on my mouse movements in games like bfbc2 and css. After all I should have keep the card but I didn’t know that the card after this one gave me trouble as well.

3rd Card was the 560 ti hawk as well and gave me exactly the same problems as the first card I bought. It was not as bad as the first mouse laggy game play but the colors and the 2D quality where really bad. My 9800 gtx+ was outperforming the hawk in sharpens and color quality.
Here is my topic about the dirt card.

I thought the first card is is a bad one ok no problems so far rma it and get a right one. They didn’t sell the card anymore so I bought the hawk like it is pretty much the same. 2nd one no discussion about it. It was not the card the seller was showing me. 3rd one same as the first problems + bad 2d quality.

Is it just bad luck or do I expect to much????????? am I crazy????????

Now the 6950 is on its way. IL tell you my experience with that one to.
I don’t really care about high frame rates, I just want to play a game normal with no lag or unsmooth game play. It has to be just direct so I can shoot at a normal way in 1st person shooters. Like my previous card evga 9800 gtx+ and the hawk that where on default factory clock speeds.

Maybe there are more people who get a bad buying experience like me. Tell me your buying story.

Got the radeon installed.
Its working outstanding in css, but wen i leave pcie spread spectrum on auto in the bios it got the same lag and the colors aren’t that sharp. But wen i put it on disable my monitor is shining.
Maybe its my psu its an new one. I should have go with seasonic, double the price but i think it would have been worth it.
Also when i clock the pci-e frequency its more faster in bfbc2. I just leave it on auto because i don’t know if it would damage anything.
Still the 2nd buy the 560 ti hawk with factory clocks was the best card.
