Just get the GT and OC it. Will get Ultra speeds and beyond, and will save you a lot of cash unless you just REALLY want an Ultra. Don't flash to an Ultra BIOS though like some might suggest. Stay with a GT bios because it has faster RAM timings. Some ultra users flash to a GT BIOS because of that very reason. And of course if you water cooled it you could get even higher nice OC's

Alright thanks for the help all I'm gonna go with the GT just cuz of price.

But another question how do u OC's it ive never clocked a vid card.

And im looking at the BFG one cuz of the lifetime warranty.

Will OC affect the warranty?

First of all, OC with nVidia is really easy.

When you actually get the card, just search for "Coolbits Registry Edit"

It is actually imbedded in the drivers for the card and works easily. OC should affect the warrenty, and EVGA is the brand to go with.

Coolbits like alex said or use Rivatuner which is a little more thorough.

Yeah but unless you change the core and memory clock using a program like nibitor which alters the BIOS, then flash the card with that, they'd never know you OC'd it since it's all based from the program. As far as they know it simply overheated

Yep, im going through the same thing with my 4000. If you have money, then just get the Ultra, then OC it more.
