I have the same Rev 2.0 card and like it. I have it overclocked to 900/2000 @ 1.38v. The first one I received didn't overclock well, but ran @ 780/1900 without any problems. I was upset that the first one didn't overclock well, so I sent it back. The second one I received overclocks nicely.

It's basically luck of the draw when it comes to getting a card.

I paid $344 off Newegg.com and it came with a $30 rebate, making it $314.

I'm curious to why that guy is trying to sell such an amazing card, that's supposedly brand new and only tested once. I'd stay away from ebay.

its a warranty replacement.. i dunno maybe that has something to do with it. from his other sales, he seems like a pc enthusiast. gtx 570 OC doesnt overclock very well, he probably blew his first one so maybe thats why he is selling his warranty replacement.

other options are hd 6950 2gb $280 brand new with warranty (i can get one with a fairly high chance on unlocking).

there is a certain risk with both of these deals.

edit: the gtx 570 in question uses reference PCB with crap VRMs. since it has no warranty probs wont be good idea for me too overclock it. still not sure whether it is a better deal that the $280 brand new 2gb 6950 that will most likely unlock..
