Actually, 3dmark06 is pretty accurate. So you would pay extra money for an overclocked card? We say to get the stock 8800gt, which is not slow in any way, and oc it because it saves money, especially if you buy two of them.
And from the looks of your sig, you are a few generations behind so you dont really have an idea of just how good the card is.
