Default much difference?

im gonna buy a 8800gtx but im a little tight on money

there is one for 285.00 which has 1800MHz Memory & clock 600MHz

and there's 1 4 314 2000MHz (vs 1800MHz standard)* Memory Clock 626MHz Core

is it worth getting the dearer one ? would it make much difference

theres a sticky if you want to have a look "How to overclock your GPU" on the top of the General Computer Hardware and Software. But i think most of them you do using software that you get with the graphics card or you download off the web

Edit: Heres the link : How to OC your GPU....

Where are those GTX's from because they are cheap.
There OEM though, as I picked one up for 294 for my brother.

It didn't overclock that well, as I could only get around 50mhz out of each, core and memory.

Its not worth spending the extra though. The GTX is fast as it is, and I like the overclocking process, so its probably worth trying yourself.
