Sounds like a good card. I was hoping ASUS would release a DK TOP 1GB card, like the 512MB, but I have yet to find one.

So it seems the 1GB cards have higher limits..I wonder if this is due to the vram, or a more recent bios.

I have no idea but I've tested the Ram up to 1050 and it is stable with DK stock cooling. However the performance difference at 1920x1200 is so minimal that it doesn't matter so I'm sticking with 975 mem. 840 seems to be the limit for the core though since 850 causes problems. I really doubt I'd get anything extra out of a TOP version, I really feel I'd only spend the extra $40 for no reason.
