HotHardware has had some problems with factory overclocked GeForce cards, and they aren't the only ones. Today they look at the XFX GeForce 7900GT 550M Xtreme VIVO, with a close eye on the temps, and any possible video anomolies.
If you are looking at picking up a PPU, don't do it before you've read Ryan's full review of Asus PhysX P1 Physics Accelerator PCI Card.
'As of late, due to reported issues with overheating and graphic anomalies with overclocked GeForce
cards, many gamers are starting to think twice before purchasing factory overclocked cards. Some
hesitation before buying the highest overclocked card makes sense, but XFX along with the other
companies affected by this problem are addressing customers' concerns and backing up their products
with solid warranty support.'
