Found 6th Jul 2013
This is a fantastic deal, I haven't seen one of these cards this cheap before! An MSI GEForce GTX 760 OC for less than £200.

Dabs are a very well reputed company with cheap delivery costs and a very good returns policy.

MSI are also a well reputed manufacturer who will allow you to overclock your card and it will remain under warranty, unlike most other manufacturers.

find a GTX 760 OC from a company with good reviews and similar price in stock?

Nonsense, I've ordered several things from Dabs and never had any problems. Returned one item (under DSR) and customer service was excellent.

In fact, I posted this same deal last week (only £15 cheaper). Bear in mind this card was only announced last week, retailers need time to get stock in, but rest assured you will get it at this price.

Just use google there's no point in me posting the link as then I would appear as if I'm praising the company. lol



So...
No link, Not OC version, Cost extra, and no mention of which retailer. Very helpful.

Yeh, I agree. You're a mug if you think Dabs are a bad retailer, just read some of the comments on this site! Users seem to have nothing but good experiences with them.

Additionally, MSI are a great manufacturer who allow overclocking and *I think* even allow users to fit their own aftermarket cooling and it will still be under warranty. Very cool.
Dabs = BT
Only thing concerns me about this card is the leaf blower fan, is it noisy? most are or used to be.
I ordered one last week and still no delivery date, so bought the gaming version from scan.
scan today only deals inc vat with free del if you use avforums.

Good price for Msi.

It seems HT4U noticed the boost decreasing over time with the reference model:

After 15 minutes in a static scene is an entirely different value is emerging, which is on average only in the range of about 1000 MHz and this at 21 ° C room temperature. Thus we see an agent that acts still below the NVIDIA naming of 1032 MHz.

Hmm, this is very interesting and a good find. As you mention though, this is for the reference card and not the OC edition. Who knows, this clock behaviour may happen to all 760s, but on the other hand may just apply to the reference card they tested.

I think its more to do with the reference cooler used,and similar behaviour was seen with the reference GTX660TI:

It seems the aftermarket coolers tend to have less of an issue.

Shame it's Dabs, would rather pay the few quid more elsewhere.

Well that's great, I own an aftermarket cooler I can whack on this card which will hopefully reduce the issue if it exists.

Additionally, MSI may keep the warranty going even if I do!
Good price for a 760, however it is a reference cooler, which means you don't get much room for overclocking in terms of heat.

If you want a card that performs really well for a reasonable price and don't want to overclock - this is it.
Good price. Thanks OP.

Ah, just read that this is a feature of GPU Boost 2.0, the latest 700 technology from NVIDIA, and is performing as the card was designed to. Basically if you can keep the card cooler for longer then it will reach higher than normal boost speeds, as they describe in the article you found. Once the card reaches higher temps, the card will throttle itself back to more reasonable clocks. This means aftermarket cooling has bigger advantages than with previous NVIDIA cards.

I overclocked my msi 760 gaming to:
1160mhz clock
1702mhz memory
1225mhz boost ( when checked during playing games the clock speed is actually 1308mhz )

I haven't gone any higher but I have read reviews that the memory on the msi gaming card will go up to 1900+mhz and the clock will go a little higher (around 1200mhz)

default clock: 1020mhz, mem: 1502mhz and boost: 1085.

idle temps is 30oc and under full load is around 66oc

Wowzers, that's pretty good going.

once oc the 760 benchmarks faster then a 770 costing £100 to £150 more.
