why not get a 8800GT and overclock it, you could probley get it as high as the GTS, the only way its not going to be as good is it dosnt hae as many stream proc's 112 vs 128
Because it comes with only a single slot cooler, thus causing heat problems on oc. Plus the chip is lower binned, thus, do not oc as high. Some 8800gt do not oc at all. Chances of getting a bad apple is low, but some do get it. Gts version with higher binned chips are garaunteed to oc to at least 750mhz stable. There is only a $10-$30 difference. Not worth it.
