More about what 8800
  1. They are all the same basic card. The first one is at stock core and memory speeds. The second has a mild overclock and the third has a larger overclock. Now, the overclocked ones do provide greater performance over the stock units, but at a cost. The only problem with those overclocked cards, is that you can do the same overclocks on your own without worries because overclocking is covered under the eVGA warranty. So are those cards worth the money? Depends on whether you want to overclock it yourself.
  2. I think the Superclocked has a higher quality cooler but the stock cooler on the 8800 GTS seems to be fine if you don't overclock into the stratosphere.

    I would say buy the OC only if it has a cool game you want; otherwise OC yourself.

    I've been using a plain 8800 GTS 320 and it is overclocked to 576/1800 anyway.
  3. I might take th SC version because its on sale and very cheap.
  4. I have heard that much like RAM, the OC and SuperClocked cards might be binned higher. Thus they might be able to overclock higher, if you want to do that.

    When I bought my EVGA 8800 GTS 320MB SuperClocked in mid May, it was actually $15 cheaper then the stock card on ZipZoomFly. It overclocks flawlessly to 675/1950 on stock cooling.
