    How is this the first overclocked 8800GTS 320MB? XFX and eVGA both released overclocked 8800GTS 320MB cards also. Or do you mean this is BFG's first overclocked 8800GTS 320?

    Yes, right now XFX has two overclocked versions on newegg, both clocked higher than BFG's card.

    BFG...550/1600..$310
    XFX...560/1700..$310
    eVGA.576/1700..$320
    XFX...580/1800..$340

    BFG has only overclocked the core, the memory is left at stock speeds. The other two have overclocked both the core and the memory.

    I only play at 1400x900 so the amount of memory is perfect for me.

    Anyone buying an overclocked card needs their head examined. This is the biggest scam in the entire PC hardware market.

    You going to back that statement up? There are several reasons to buy pre-overclocked cards, they are far from scams.
