As the title suggests, I'm buying an 8800GTX for my new rig and will water cool it with MCW-60 and ram sinks.
The question is, will the basic GTX provide as much overclocking potential compared to a factory overclocked card? The difference in price is about 10% which is nothing really, so I'm inclined to go for the higher binned part and see what more I can squeeze out of it. However, if people are consistently blowing the lid off even factory overclocks with a base-model card, perhaps it's a total waste of money?
What's your experience?
