The 13% increase in SP's gives a real world gain of about 7%, give or take depending on the application. Keep in mind that 7% scales with the clock speed, so a good overlock really makes them shine. My overclocked 216 model is a bit faster than a GTX 280. From what I have seen the cores will do 700+ quite easily, though it's harder to get memory bandwidth on par with a 280, as you need the memory running at 2500Mhz for that. I went for the superclocked model as they seem to be binned higher.
Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem Quad @ 4.0GHz
EVGA GTX 660 SLI @ 1046MHz
OCZ Platinum CL7 6GB
EVGA Intel X58
