GTX 780 stock overclock vs DIY overclock

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm planning to buy a 780, but I don't know what to pick. Theres many 780s for about 100-200 dollars more than the stock and say that they come overclocked. Is it worth the extra money. I mean can't I overclock the normal one to the same speed as the stock overclocked ones. thank you.

Yes you can over clock a stock one to the overclocked-out-of-the-box one. The only difference from what I have heard is the warranty.

It's the same thing. Only difference is your stock overclocks are guaranteed to work and be stable as those speeds. With DIY overclocks, if it doesn't work, they can't do anything for you as the card is only guaranteed to worked as it is out of the box.

That is what I bought today from Tiger direct. I have seen some guys getting stable 1100 core clocks and around 6700 on the memory so far.
