I'd say, save yourself the money, and get the non-overclocked Palit, and just overclock it yourself for free.

hmmm....I'm not sure on that. But you should be able to overclock the Palit from 575/1800 to 600/1900. I don't know how overclockable the 8800GTX is, because I don't have one. Wait for someone else to answer, who knows about how overclockable the 8800GTX is.

The GTX will overclock higher than the pre-overclocked. Nvidia supplies all of the companies with the same chips. The Palit has the same potential as the BFG's do really when it comes to being overclocked and you should be able to hit I think around 650 on the core.

Ok, dont do anything, yet... First of all, get an EVGA 8800 GTX AFTER the 89xx series comes out and the 88xx prices will drop drastically. Also, EVGA has a step up program so youll have the option to pay the difference and upgrade to the 8900 whatever if you want to. hope this helps.

First off hes from down under where EVGA cards are expensive there. No if he wants a card soon he shouldn't wait as the 8900 series won't be out for a little while at least. The Step-up is only good if you have a replacement card in mind for at least a month while your card is at EVGA.
