    while they are very good overclocks, whats the point. they are already the best cards in the world, have no probem with any game at all why overclock them. so you can get 200fps instead of 180

    I suspect there will be improvements at 2560x1600, but that isn't going to affect most people :)

    I hate pre-OC'd cards.

    The oc's always suck, and a three year old could do better.

    i knew XFX would be the first with the XXX series, theyre not pre overclocked i don't think.. They're factory set to those speeds. But i think evga will wipe XFX's floor with their "superclocked" version when it arises =P

    pre-overclocked is the same as setting increased factory speeds. ;)

    Limb, kidneys? Nah. I hear you can donate a testicle for $60,000 USD. I mean, you only need one.

    Nice cards, but..

    My Asus 8800GTS clocks gpu 500@650mhz and ram 800@1015mhz (2030 if it's doubled?) and i run 3dmark06 just fine.
    I run it at gpu 500@600 and ram 800@950 on the everyday basis, just to be sure it runs nice and steady.<

    So I can't really say they are pushing the pre-oc cards that high :\
