If you look at 2 stock cards...the gap is $50+, and the performance diff is marginal. I'd say get an superclocked 320 GTS from eVGA, just like mine
I see this argument over and over regarding memory, cpus, and gpus....and I just don't understand it.

Why compare an overclocked component to a stock one? The "stock" one can just be overclocked as well and the lesser component won't keep up...
