It's been pre-overclocked.
Go with the eVGA (better quality) one if you can, if not then the XFX one would be just fine.

XFX are 325 it's a typo I believe

Anyways, at their's a PNY 6800 for 160$, that's what I would go for. If you cant see it, I may have to send you a link

I picked up a BFG 6800 overclocked and have been more than happy with it. This replaced my ATI 9800 Pro and it was a world of difference. I couldnt see myself spending the extrat money on the GT model (I'm not that hard core of a gamer, but always like having a nice video card in my system). I can still play any of the big games that come out with no problems on this card at high settings.
