My System Specs


(Wonder how well this overclocks and what's the power draw.)
I'm sure it will OC very similar to the older 65nm experience OC'ing both the 65nm 260's and 280's has proven to myself that the OC was not limited to heat at all, but was limited to stability. These Cards can become unstable at normal operating Temps with higher OC's, for example, my older 260's and my present 280's are perfectly stable at 720 / 1458 / 1260 Temps Maxed out at 72c, the minute you bump the OC a little more, although Temps don't change the Cards will start to Artifact. particularly when playing Crysis.
Imo, these newer 55nm Cards are not worth moving to if you presently have the 65nm Cards....These 55nm 2xx Series Cards are going to be by-passed by myself and wait for the more anticipated 3xx Series in May / June 09.

Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530
