well I don't have a 8800GT...but you can raise it with a bios flash using nibitor

Apparently you can only go as high as 1.1v though before you need hardmods...which is the only reason I am hesitant to buy a 8800GT.

I only care about cost vs. performance after overclocking. For example my old cheapish 7900GT was clocked to 702/1840mhz and outperformed many overclocked x1950xt cards for a fraction of the price.

Hit about 10 points shy of 7,000 in 3dmark06
