    BFG Technologies announced today the BFG NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX OC, OC2, and OCX 512MB PCI Express 2.0 graphics cards.

    BFG GeForce 9800 GTX OC, OC2, and OCX graphics cards offer customers a choice of three different levels of factory overclocked Graphics Processing Units which are all thoroughly tested and backed by the company’s famous lifetime warranty.

    “Any company can push clock speeds to the limit—but operating a graphics card at those excessive clock speeds over time can result in all kinds of problems”, said John Malley, senior director of marketing for BFG Technologies. “We put our OC, OC2, and OCX overclocked graphics cards through an extensive testing process to find the highest stable clocks. This gives users an increase in performance and ensures that their investment will operate smoothly for many years to come.”

    Maybe they heard you could OC them yourself and didn't need the pre-overclocked versions. :p

    Its a security feature on your computer, when it sees a horrible deal.

    Most Non Overclocked Boards overclock alot further that factory overclocked parts, its basically like paying for a CPU that is Resold at its higher Rate while being marked as something else, ex 6600 being sold as a 6850.
