Default 7800gt

Alrighty, so Christmas is coming up and I'm thinking about a 7800GT. It's been a while since I've looked into computer hardware and I don't know too much about it. Has it lived up to the hype? Is eVGA ,again, the best choice?
Also, on newegg, there's two different eVGA 7800GTs. What's the difference? I see one appears to be OC'ed? What's the deal?

the OCed one is only $10 more..... unless you're going to OC it as soon as you get it I say get the pre-OCed one.

The OCed one runs quite close to the next highest graphics card (the 7800GTX i believe its called). I'd definetly go for the overclock.

Wait... the OC'ed one costs like $30 less. Something's smells fishy.

Mail-in rebate on the non-overclocked one.
