8800 GTS Superclocked or not?
 
The superclocked (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130080) 8800 GTS seems like the better buy for only 50$ more than the norm 8800 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130071) is their going to be a big diff between the two?

Thanks

id go with the superclocked, i dont have one, but the difference in those clocks are major and yes you would see a difference, having those clocks from the factory is very good cause its stable and is under warranty, also i have heard the regular cards OC but not nearly as much as the superclocked, so for 30bucks extra, id do it...

well I'd go with the normal one. It's the same card, the only difference is that the manufacturer has overclocked the other one. So in the end, you are paying them $30 to oc your vid card.
bullzi, they are both GTS, one is just overclocked.

I'd go with the regular one. You could always just bump the clocks up to that level without any extra modding needed. The only factory-overclocked card I'd consider is the EVGA ACS3 8800GTS. It has a completely different cooler that I believe would be better for overclocking.

And as for the clocks, I believe nearly all GTS's can go higher than that one, but it's up to you how far you overclock it. It's still under EVGA's warranty even if you overclock it.
