Ive heard that XFX runs hotter than normal is that true?
maybe you've heard reports of the overclocked cards? seeing as XFX sells so many stock overclocked models.

well i live in a warm climate and it's summer, my XFX card reached 605/850 on the stock cooler without a volt mod, so i'm in favour of their overclocks. it's my understanding that the memory almost invariably overclocks better on XFX cards because ,of the chips they choose.

yes you are......
seeing as you said "shot down" i'll PM apok to ban you

personally i like XFX cards and i feel that there are far too many eVGA worshippers around here.
