Get the standard DD with stock speeds and OC it yourself. Factory overclocked cards are never worth the premium pricing.

Yeah, factory overclocked card for 25-50$ more or just overclock your card higher (as all manufacturer keep some margin) for free and buy a game or two with the saved cash ;)

I have a ASUS 560 OC (850mhz) that goes up to 1019 core at max and the TOP version (925mhz) or the reference are all within 5-10mhz from that so i paid like 20$ for nothing as i overclock more than the manufacturer "850 core clock" and i run 24/7 at 950mhz so 100 mhz more than the overclock and 25mhz more than the TOP that was another 30$ more...

Gaming PC: MSI Z77A-G45 ::: Intel Core I7 3770k @ 4.83Ghz ::: EVGA GTX680SC Signature ~1300mhz Boost/7122mhz ram ::: 16GB 4*4gb G.Skill 2240mhz CL10 ::: ASUS Xonar DX ::: Crucial M4 128gb (windows) + Intel 330 180gb (Steam games) + 1TB Caviar Black (storage) ::: Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold M1000 ::: Antec P280 ::: Noctua NHU12P SE2 ::: ASUS VE247H ::: Logitech G510 ::: Cooler Master Storm Sentinel II ::: Logitech X530 ::: Steelseries Siberia V-2 Black & gold edition

Or get a faster 670 for about the same money? Or the cheaper 660ti that is just as fast as the 7950.
