Sapphire x850xt potential?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
i just got a this card and am thinking of RMA'ing it back.

the reason is that it is not very overclockable and i dont know if flashing another bios provided by techpowerup will help.


I need to know what i can do or just RMA it back to newegg.

Is this the one that Newegg has for $160, because who the freak would care if it overclocks for that rocking price? I ordered one for my office at work.

If you want to get similar performance from any other card, you will pay $100 more. You cannot have it all, my friend.
