[Buying Suggestion] Factory Overclocked vs Self Overclocked GPU


Hello members,

I am new to overclocking and had a question about GPU overclocking…

Should I buy an already overclocked GPU and then overclock that, or should I buy a base model and then overclock from there? Will have a difference in performance?

Thanks for the help!

Factory OC guarantees a certain amount of OC on your card, whereas when buying non overclocked cards it might get unstable when overclocking it at a similar amount.This doesn’t mean the stock one won’t overclock to the same. The overclock is extremely marginal as well. Represents such a small difference in gaming that it’s not worth it in my opinion.
