+1 to this.

The ACX cards are also hard limited to 1.212v so if you get a potato overclocker like I did you can't add much voltage at all....my card maxed at 1450mhz

Good to know. Hopefully I get a decent one. After looking at newegg.. The FTW seems like a good choice.

No, they're not. My 970 FTWs would run at 1.275v, and did so, on a daily basis.

Never really understood the point of linux besides coding, don't see why you wouldn't want to dual-boot to windows to game.

I can recommend you the 970, but so far my experience is not that great and I do have a FTW one like @vellinious recommended you, but I am a living curse.

Well I will keep this short because it is the wrong place for this discussion. I like Linux, I do not like Windows and if I was going to go through the trouble of dual booting I would just use wine instead.

+1.. the only limited card is the basic ACX version and first gen SC... some report the first gen SSC locked but I'm not sure about that

I'm talking about the SC and SSC ACX models...the FTW does allow more volts.

My card was a ACX 2.0 SSC and it was locked down.

Looks like some sensor or something has died and GPU hits perfcap all-time.
