I normally don't OC it over the factory 425/1.10 because the performance gain in games is negligible and I'm more about buying fast hardware and leaving it stock and reliable but like to venture with OC'n every now and then when I'm bored.
That is exactly my philosophy. Not that I didn't overclock before, when I was a student and had no money.
. Not overclocking helps me identify software problems instantly, since when you get a crash, you know it can't be yout p4 3.2 stock with 6800 Ultra stock, etc.
Anyway, on topic, coolbits gave me on my ASUS 6800 Ultra 459/11??. (stock 425/1100) But that was a year ago, with fw 61.77. I have to check it again with newer drivers, and with the effect of time.
