if you want to OC the video card, just get the regular version and OC it. no use spending extra for something you could do in 5 minutes

by the way, what are your needs? maybe people here could upgrade your build a little bit for your price range

My budget is 600-800 and I will be using the computer only for gaming. I have a laptop I do all of my word processing, media, internet, e-mail etc. on.

Also, I don't need a monitor, keyboard, mouse or speakers.
