Duckie I just found where I want to work.

I wouldn't worry about the slightly overclocked superclocked non-sense, its nothing a little overclocking (or volt mod) can't fix.

Adding to this, most of their SSC cards are clocked so high that if you were to do it yourself to a standard non-overclocked card you would not be able to achieve stability at the same settings.

Eh, the majority of cards can hit SSC speeds... but not all.


As a side note, RMAing a SSC card will give you a better chance of getting an upgraded cards especially if the SSC model has been discontinued.
Once again...

Right.

And the OP is complaining about 10 bucks when he probably spent close to a thousand dollars in video cards.

Why do they charge 10 bucks extra just for overclocking it a bit?
Really- there are no extra gimmicks or mods, just a 7-15% overclock, which is something you could easily do at home.
Good point. However, there's a little secret about eVGA. You can buy the base version of their card, download the bios for the top version of the same card and flash the bios of your card to be at the top card and it's still covered under warranty so long as it's the official evga bios downloaded from evga's website. How's that for awesome.
