If you hit the silicon lottery, some cards auto overclock (boost clock) pass 1200MHz without you having to do anything out of the box... in fact they all would boost clock pass the advertised specifications... if you want more performance you can use EVGA Precision or MSI Afterburner to overclock even more... I have the Gigabyte Windforce GTX 670 and out of the box it boosts to around 1165MHz, but some people I've seen go pass 1200MHz... The ASUS Top are selective bins so technically they are supposedly the best out of the three I mentioned - I didn't get it because I was too impatient and went with the Windforce - but I don't regret it because it is really quite compared to my previous GTX 570...

Thanks again! I'll go for the ftw. I have a small question, why is it that the Newegg posting doesnt resemble that off the EVGA site, the EVGA website shows ftw in blue on the card itself.

I'm in Korea myself right now. You can only buy these monitors in seedy backalley shops where they sell counterfeit iPods. I think that should say something about these monitors, myself

It's true that you'll find them in the 'seedier' places, but honestly, so what? You're not getting the longevity of a DELL with these, that's why they're so cheap.

The company that makes the catleaps seem legit: http://www.alibaba.com/member/kr112791436.html

I'm hoping for longevity from mine. We'll see.

Maybe EVGA gave them photos of the production/engineering sample because they wanted it quick for posting/lisiting? And the EVGA photos or their actually shipping/released ones...

Haha! Makes sense, alright. I went for the GTX 670 2gb ftw. Will pull the trigger on the Catleap tonight. Going for the perfect pixel version

Barely related question - my apologies - would this male HDMI-to-female DVI adapter work in a chain connection with a DVI->VGA adapter?

Trying to come up with a cheap solution for an HDMI socket on my video card to work with a VGA projector input, instead of buying a more expensive display port -> VGA connector (I also have 2 mini display ports on my card).

I don't think it would... Assuming this is your chain connection: HDMI--->DVI--->DVI--->VGA

HDMI, DVI, and Display Ports are Digital signals - so you would need an active adapter to change it to analogue (VGA)... but then again, it is cheap enough that it may be worth to try it out?
