    Hardocp published a very interesting article today after speaking with Nvidia and some company representatives who sell preoverclocked Nvidia 7900 series cards. It appears some of them may be pushing the limits a little too far.

    It certainly makes you wonder if Nvidia should have had more control over this situation in the first place.

    Definately so, it's always nice to see if third party vendors can get a little more performance out of the hardware available but i would be pretty upset if I spent £300-£400 on a premium card only to have to RMA it 2-3 weeks later.

    I'm damn near scared of ordering any of these 7900GT's.

    I am glad i got the stock speed 7900 GT... honestly i play with OC for benching but other then that i find almost no game i want OC to get any more FPS as the card already runs very well at stock speeds!
