Default 8800GT Step Up?

I was planning to Step up to an 8800GT from my 8800GTS 320 this weekend and I kinda wanted to get the KO or the SSC edition, but it wasn't an option on eVGA's site. They only had the 8800GT. Is that my only option? I would prefer to have it pre-overclocked. What's the deal?

It depends I think on what they have in stock.

A few years ago I stepped up from a standard 7800GT to a 7900GT KO Superclocked.....one of the best cards I've ever owned.

i read on their forums they don't let u step up to special editions cards anymore..but i guess if they run out of standards...they have no choice but to let u get a special edition
