You hit the nail on the head. The only time you'll notice a bit of a difference is if your graphics card is already really struggiling with a game and you get a few more fps by overclocking.

yeah...basically if you think you'll be able to use that extra performance then OC...but you probably won't find much use for an OC until DX10 is out and games use that.

anyways i'd say just wait a little while. You can always OC it later but it's pointless to have it OCed if you can't use it.

i do think you should OC it later on though.
