Seriously , end your suffering, Get a 7970 lightning, its actually not a bad card. Nvidia are jerks about voltage control, AMD isn't. Really good card actually. You could also get a classified which per user posts is averaging 1275 overclocks, but you can serve as a guinea pig for EV bot. 769$ is a bit beyond my comfort zone, so I give you this task.
I'm not being sarcastic btw, the 7970 lightning is a great card. When I was using 7970s overclocking was easy peasy because every 7970 lets you adjust voltage to your hearts desire......Heck I was able to get 1200 out of reference cards. I don't know why nvidia forces us through a ton of bullcrap for extreme overclocking, it wasn't like this during the GTX 580 days.Edited by xoleras - 7/19/12 at 2:40pm
