1. Obviously not all 448 were created equally
2. Mine is a fluke and i got lucky
3. You need to go out and purchase the 448 Classified from EVGA
1. For sure.... Mostly.
2. I think allot of it has to do with mobo, and power supply too. I can run 900/1800/1950 with only bumping up the volts one notch to 1.038. That is still not bad. Hell, I would suggest to do that even if you plan to run at stock clocks. I do think there are a large number of these cards that will require tons of power to OC though.
3. I def agree that the EVGA classified is the best of the bunch. I did massive amounts of research for which card will hold me over until the gen3 stuff comes out and, for the money, this thing easily takes the cake. The last 7 cards I have bought have been from EVGA and have been Nvidia GPU's. The last ATI card I owned was the 9800 Pro. I hate to say I am a fanboy, but they just keep releasing items that catch my attention. I was going to get an AMD HD 6950 or chunk out the money for a 6970, but then I saw this thing. They make good product. This thing destroys my GTX 460 SLI set up I had.
