EVGA gtx 460 sc

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
you may have seen a few threads by me already, but im VERY picky when it comes to buying hardware .

Question is, Is it worth buying the "Super clocked version" of the EVGA gtx 460 or is it better to just buy the standard one and overclocking it myself? The is close to a £10 difference in price.

Is it worth the hassle to overclock it for £10? Or is it a simple case of *Slider goes up, performance goes up, do a quick stability test and Congrats you now have the sc version*

Can the SC version be overclocked again or is it already at its peak?

Thanks in advance guys!

Do you know if the Gtx 460's SC versions have been "Buin'd"?

I don't get too much money spare like this. The last time I bought a card it was my pair of 8800gtx's which im still running ;D
