Except that a windforce 670 idles at 35C and up in the 50s under load. And keep in mind it's overclocked out of the box. Yes 50 bucks its worth it for a custom pcb and cooler not to mention its dead silent.
The point of my reply was to disprove your "galaxy cards need to be underclocked" statement; not that the galaxy card is somehow better than the windforce.
I'll grant you the noise will be less on the windforce, but that's the only difference (who cares about 70C vs 50C? neither will effect card life). and btw idle temp is totally dependent on ambient, my reference card idles at 31C. If noise is worth $50 go for it, but reference cards have their place.

Just put on your ebay listing instructions on how to redeem the codes.
I'm just a little confused, because TD emailed me the codes, and to redeem the games you have to "register" the games with your name email...etc, so I was wondering if the games could still be claimed my name wasnt used in the redemption process.
Just wanted to circle back here and report I just installed my card today and it rocks. It was a worthwhile upgrade from my GTX 560 Ti after you-know-which rebate site, the MIR, and resale of my GTX 560. Right out of the box I have it overclocked to 1020MHz/1085MHz boost, stock voltage (faster than the pre-overclocked card which made FP a week before this deal).
