    Is this a good buy?

    It's c$536 in Newegg.ca.

    Zotac 280 gtx @ 700 Mhz

    Is Zotac a good brand? I did a quick search in the netz and found mixed reviews.

    Any updates?

    Thanks a lot

    I'd try to get a better brand (EVGA, XFX etx), personally.

    But thats just me, odds are its fine.

    nope. Zotac is giving Grid away.

    I chose Zotac because of the overclocked edition: 700Mhz.

    Time will tell if I did the right thing... :D

    I found this concerning (from the X-bit labs article linked above)
    Factory sample and it overheats? I mean, yeah, anyone on this forum would know how to fix it. But why is it even a problem in a production sample?

    I saw that...

    In Canada winter is coming in full force, so I'm not concerned. During summer I will have to leave the case open and improve air flow.
