ok thanks ... I'll probably get the eVGA then.

Will the eVGA superclocked version get too hot while playing games? (remembering in greece it has hot temps (room temp 28-35C)). If so i would rather get the standard version with normal clocks.

I've used XFX and eVGA cards in the past. I prefer eVGA. But, as awesome as the step-up program sounds, do some research. A LOT of people aren't happy with it. You have to do it at eVGA's MSRP, not what the cards are actually selling for. You also will most likely be put on a waiting list that can last a good while since eVGA seems to always be out of everything, and you have to have all of your original packaging.

Not saying it doesn't work, but I am saying that it's kind of a catch-22 type deal.

Don't worry about temps. I would just get the normal one, and OC it yourself. You could save a little bit of dough that way.

The XFX model might have the highest clock speeds, although the EVGA has some nice speeds and it also has the 90 day step up program (pay difference between yours and better card to get it and trade in old one up to 90 days from puchase).

Although I've heard that XFX usually clocks their cards over what they actually can handle and they end up being unstable or burn out.

I recommend EVGA in the end.
