Default Video card standard vs Superclocked version.

Is there any difference between superclocked versions and standard? Can I just overclock my standard card to the superclocked speed? Can the superclocked version overclock further than the standard?

Alot of times, the supperclocked version have better memory allowing it to OC. But in most cases, you can overclock a standard card to the superclocked card's speeds. Some superclocked cards wont OC much more than they already are being that they are pretty much pushed to the limit.

I have no idea, but I do wanna see how this plays out. I would have to say superclocked is probably built so it can clock higher. Then what they do is they clock it for you. But let's see what the experts say.

Usually the cards are identical, but sometimes the OC'ed cards have modified coolers. If the card you're looking at has the standard cooler, then save your money and but one at stock speeds and OC yourself.
