Kind of excited now. UPS will be delivering my new card tommorow
I got the GTX 570 SC edition, with the HF bracket and backplate.
Lots of benching to do once I get all the accesories put on it and installed.
The card may actually be prettier than the rest of my machine though
After shopping around a bit, I ended up going through TigerDirect. They have a 1 time $10 off deal this month, for any purchase/s that total over $100.
So I ended up being able to grab this card for $349. (Reg. Edition was $339)
Seemed to be a pretty decent deal. Hopfully its performance will reflect the price.
On a side note:
I've been reading the SC edition is basically the same card as the Reference Edition.
The difference being, its bios are programed for its OC with a modified Fan profile.
Also, the SC cards are supposedly higher binned parts.
Sadly, most of what Im seeing seems to be pure speculation. Anyone know if its true (in terms of higher binned) and where I could find a definitive answer?
Not that it matters alot at this point but I thought it identical aside from being programmed with higher clocks.
