I recall reading elsewhere that XFX produced a batch of warg'ed cards, but that was now corrected. Read any reviews on the XFX model itself and you will find that you are very wrong.
Clock speed isn't what makes a video card? What do you think "overclocking" is? If you don't care about clock speed, then why do you even OC? Raise the clock speed (aka overclocking), get better performance. Having a higher starting clock speed just makes things easier assuming the card is reliable, which it is in this case.
Leadtek has provided the worst tech support I have ever seen, and I know from my own personal experience. Perhaps I just got unlucky, but what kind of company provides tech support that is just one page
to email them? They didn't get back to me and it's been around 3 weeks. They don't even have a toll free number.
I'm not here to argue about Leadtek or XFX. The point is, XFX now produces a reliable card. Their 7800 GTX is much better than most immediately assume, and I initially thought they were garbage until I did more research. I think it's a good choice.
