Hi everyone, first time poster here.

I'm building my first desktop system from scratch with the help of my buddy. It's going to be primarily for gaming. I bought everything off of Newegg last week. The graphics card I decided to go with was the EVGA GTX 570.
This is the link of the card that I bought:

As I was browsing today I saw a listing for the same card OC'd that is 10 dollars less.

I guess my question is, can I OC the card that I have coming in 2 days comparable to what the factory OC'd version is? I've read through reviews on both and the first seems to be stable and perfect out of the box. For the OC'd version it seems like a lot of the people have issues with the graphics card being OC'd but still having some stock settings for like the voltage and such, and then having to adjust that stuff anyway. I'm not too concerned with the 10 dollar price difference but I am concerned whether or not I can get my card to the OC'd specs that the Factory OC'd one has. I'm pretty sure I can return the card I have coming and then buy the OC'd one but that would set me back from building my desktop which I want to use now. My laptop just crapped out on me 2 weeks ago so I've been waiting imo too long to get this desktop. So the most convenient thing for me at the moment would be to just use the card I have that will arrive with everything else and OC it later. I really dont want to return/get OC'd card but I will if its better and I can't achieve same OC by myself.

System specs:

i5 2500k
Asus P8P67 mobo
Corsair vengeance 4GB (2x2GB) 1600 DDR3
Raidmax hybrid 630W PSU
Raidmax Helios case
Seagate 1TB HD
GTX 570 *regular :( *

Thank you for taking the time to read/reply.
