    8800 gts help!

    hi,
    quick question, what is the difference between the
    8800gts brought from OCUK 8800gts
    and the 8800gts brought from scan8800gts

    Both are overclocked (doesn't look like it on the scan version but it says so) but somehow the OCUK version is £8 cheaper.
    Shower shorts, for the man who has nothing to hide, but still wants to.

    They're the same model. Prices varying between e-tailers is normal.

    Looks like a different coloured sticker on the front! That's about it.

    I think there is a BFG OC (overclocked) and a BFG OC2 (overclocked...2?)

    I got the two version and its 580 / 1700 instead of 550/1600

    I presume the cooling is the same so it's nothing you couldn't do yourself i guess, just whether you want it out of the box
