    In that situation i'd go for the Ultra but a lot of people would say buy the standard GTX and overclock it and save some cash ?!
    Hark the children of the Resolution !!

    Yeah, get a ~£350 GTX and if u need the extra oomph then overclock it urself. However i doubt that u will need the extra MHz considering the GTX is so fast at stock. If you really want to spend the extra money go for the ultra.

    Also i hope you intend to game at a resolution suitable for the card. If you dont have at least a 24" running 1920x1200 go for the £350 GTX and spend the rest on a monitor that warrants spending that much on a GFX card.

    Although I may be wrong with todays newer cards, I had an old Inno3D GeForce2 and it seemed like it had a low quality set of components which definitely did not allow any o'clocking (although on a GF2 i dno how much was do-able)

    To be fair to it though, it was very reliable at stock speeds and I still run a server from it

    You can get an 8800 Ultra for less than £470 even an XFX one. Just look at scan.

    I have seen asus ones for around £440 which are clocked at 650Mhz

    The XFX 8800GTX XXX (so many Xs) is already overclocked, and given that the Ultra is just a higher-clocked GTX (I think) there may not be that much in it...

    I've just ordered a system with the XFX so I hope it's a good card!
