not really ... save money for something else in your new build ... go 920 and OC it the same ;)
All I have left to buy is my CPU, OS ans 2nd VGA card...so an extra $11 is not gonna break the bank. Especially considering I haven't spent any of my own hard earned money for this build yet, been selling other stuff on ebay to build my PC. The reviews I've read suggest if you are building a new i7 PC then go with the 930.

On Newegg, 930 is $299.99 shipped. 920 is $288.99 shipped. What's a 11 bucks for potentially a 23x multipler?
