XFX Radeon HD 5870 vs XFX Radeon HD 5870 XXX

After researching the difference between the standard 5870 (ZNF9) and the XXX (ZND9) version is seems the only difference is slightly higher clock speeds (core/memory) on the XXX version. I was curious if in the opinion of the forum members if this was worth an additional $30 which is the cost difference at Amazon.

  1. personally I wouldn't pay the extra for the overclock, I think its generally believed that the factory overclocked cards can overclock more than the standard cards, but I have a standard HD5850 and it overclocks ALOT (From 725/1000 to 925/1125 with stock volts).

    You could easily overclock a standard 5870 to XXX clocks. Thats why I think it isn't worth it.
  2. Good point omgitzfatal. And I'd make points with the spouse for being frugal. :D
