worth the difference (8800gtx question)

Ok, im getting a eVga 8800gtx for my new build. Newegg has 3 models. Is it worth it to go with the Superclocked version, or can i overclock the basic one and get the same performance?

Regular

Superclocked

As far as i can tell the only difference is core clock goes from 575 to 621 and memory clock goes from 1800 to 2000.

Can i overclock the regular to get those speeds without extra cooling?

Thanks

  1. You should be able to overclock it to the same level yourself.

    Although of course nothing is guaranteed other than the stock clocks.

    Buy the regular one now and then use that step up program they have to upgrade to a 8800 GTX when prices drop!!! :lol:
  3. Thats a good idea, i forgot about that program :)

    yeah and i heard the next wave of the 8 series aka 8900 or something like that will be coming out within the next month or so.

    So try to hold off till you're near the 90 days to step up.
  5. i OWN a superclocked but thats because i cant be bothered :D

    go for the normal one same thing you can always overclock :wink:
