At 1080p 120hz 2Xgtx670's at stock will be more than enough for me. I just want to enjoy my games as that is all that matters to me at the end of the day. I have a back log of games I want to finish and Borderlands 2 is out this week too.
Overclocking is just willy waving imo. I understand it is enthusiast teritory and takes higher presedence to some people but for me it is just something try out when I get the time and is also educational.
If people are returning their cards because the silicone lottery didn't work out for them then I don't know if they are being foolish or simply don't understand what that term means.
I know it can be a bit upsetting not getting a card overclock higher than others but then that's always a gamble. If you want the best performing card and a stock 670 isn't good enough then maybe you should have considered a GTX680/90.
I always buy a card on the basis of the stock clocks and how quiet it is, gaining high overclocks is just a bonus and always will be for me. I've learnt that the hard way.
