Default BFG 6800GT OC'ed

Does anyone know if this card is worth the 400 dollars. I know its overclocked out of the box and around the same price as any other AGP 6800, however if anyone else has ever owned one please give your opinions.

I'd say go with eVGA 6800GT and just overclock it yourself.

The OC that BFG does is minimal and chances are you wouldn't even notice maybe 2fps difference between that and a normal card.

You'd be able to get much higher results, up to Ultra speeds with the eVGA brand because they put on a heatsink made for the Ultra on a card less powerful (the GT) so it's like getting an aftermarket heatsink.

Even if you don't necessarily want to risk getting it up to Ultra speeds I can tell you with basically 99% confidence that you can get the eVGA ATLEAST and we're talking absolute bare minimum here.....what that BFG card has.
