Good luck with that bro. Not many stores do that but they should. However make sure the content you see on a 1440p screen is a native 1440p content and not 1080p.

Something about the 6series cards that they need to be below 70c or they start downclocking themselves to lose heat.
I adopted the above fan profile and today when I gamed in BF3 the highest I saw was 71 degrees which is OK it seems. Also about the downclocking i think it is very small though no?

Overclocked too 950 core my 580's will reach about 85 degrees with a quiet 70% fan speed, unless I push the fans too 100% when it doesn't go above 65 degrees.
However anything under 90 degrees is fine as GPU's can take it, fan noise is more my issue, which is why I love my cards.
However for every day use I haven't had too overclock them yet.
playing an exact game in 1440p and 1080p both at 60fps will give different temperatures in exact same setups.
Also I agree on OCing. The stability of an OC in 1080p MIGHT not be stable in 1440p. I experienced it when i switched to 1440p gaming.
