Should be here Monday
To be honest, I wouldn't buy a factory overclocked version. They aren't hand picked from everything I have read. There is also no guarantee that they will clock higher than a standard version. Only that they are stable at the factory overclocked speeds. I have never had any issues overclocking a standard card to there factory overclocked ones.
