eVGA 7900GT stepup question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I already requested replace my 7600GT CO to 7900GT but I was wondering if paying extra $20 to stepup to 7900GT CO is worth it? I'm planning on OC'ing this thing and I'm going to install VF900 once I get it. What advantage does 7900GT CO has over regular 7900GT in OC'ing?

Thanks

Well if you are planning on replacing the HSF, I don't think there would be any difference.

are the two version identically same other than the fact that they the CO version comes pre-OC from factory? or do they use higher quality parts in CO version?

the CO has a copper heatsink. That's the only difference.

Don't bother getting it. The normal one is fine if you're getting the vf900CU. Good luck (and vmod that puppy!)
