Default Any point in paying more for the same card?

Is there any point in paying $50 more for a card that is slightly overclocked, besides the fact that many people are to lazy to overclock it?

Pretty much no.. but I should tell you sometimes the slightly more expensive cards come with nicer coolers (take the ICEQ4 from HIS) or you get better warranties (take XFX or eVGA)

But pretty much no.. people don't know that slight fact and it usually screw them over
