Default Question about OCing a Video Card

k, so I sold my 8800 GTX for exactly what I paid

now I'm going to get an Ultra

my question is:

If i get a overclocked factory card does this mean i can overclock that card even further than a stock 612Mhz card?


EVGA and XFX both have the stock card for $600, BUT MSI has one that is factory overclocked for the same price. its clocked at 660Mhz

would this mean if I got the MSI i could OC it further than a regular XFX or EVGA?

Or would i be able to push any of them to the same limits?

You should be able to push any of them to the same limits, the MSI will just go a little further. Not that it matters much.

well i guess its better to start out at a guaranteed 660Mhz than 612Mhz

the free Lost Planet is tempting though from XFX
