Read through these benchmarks: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-680-review-benchmark,3161-14.html
I really don't care about (or for, for that matter) whether these 680's can play todays games. My 5850 plays the demo's just fine as does my 6800 GTS.
I was after an overclockable card. Having locked voltages does not make for an overclockable videocard.
All I asked in my OP was how much it would cost for me to refuse delivery for these cards I bought from EVGA.
I wanted to ship them back immediately so somebody interested in these castrated cards could buy them asap.
Now, I'm quite sure some idiots will be happy to buy them off of eBay at a minimum bid of $600 USD.
I was just going to ship them back to EVGA, now that I've found that there are so many people that actually believe that these are the best cards ever made and that there's already been an offer of $600 each for them, I think I'll just see how far you people will go to buy these at an even more ridiculous price.
I tried to be nice and get these back to EVGA so that they could be resold at the going rate from the factory, but you've convinced me otherwise.
I, and my bank account, thank you!
