Hi there, i am planning to buy a new PC with an EVGA Geforce 9600GT. But i am confused whether i should buy the SC edition and overclock it manually (and save some bucks) or should i directly go for the SSC with no hassles of manual overclocking. Just for the info, i have never overclocked before.

Don't get the 9600. They are crap, they are just a renamed version of the 8800 GTS
No, it's not a renamed version of anything. It uses a G94 core, not a G92. And it has 64 stream processors, no other card has this number. I'd buy any EVGA version, you can later download for free their EVGA Precision application, it's really easy to use even if you've never overclocked before. I'm pretty sure you could reach the SSC's MHz with any edition. But of course, like many others would do, i'd suggest spending a bit more for a HD 4850. It's about the same as a 9800GTX.
