Living in a fantasy world, like this is some new development that cards can brick if you pump too many volts through it..
You need to look up the meaning of troll FYI. Also if I replied to every retarded post you made I would have double the posts.
Don't care about the 6990, then why are you posting about it in your comments with inaccurate information.
The *facts are the 6990 is faster, overclocks, is more noisy and cheaper*(so I have heard, have not checked).
Nvidia's card is nice, I like it, but the overclocking issue is a serious one IMO. If I dump wedge on a card like that I am going to OC the crap out of it.
Of course people who overvolt are taking a risk to a certain degree, but to have multiple cards blowing up with small bumps in voltage is not normal.
But you are a big nvidia fan and special needs so I don't expect any of the above to sink in.
I remember you singing the praises of the GTX470 when you bought it on launch, great card eh, where is it now less than a year later? Must be pretty sucky to upgrade already?
But like every Zealot of Nvidia, slower than 6990, don't matter, more pricey, don't matter, explodes on overclocking, don't matter.
It has a quieter fan, which is the most important!
You still quote yourself in your sig, real funny. Legend.Edited by Newbie2009 - 3/25/11 at 2:19am
