It would seem reasonable to assume that the card with the higher clock would perform better, but not if it runs hotter or has other issues relating to the overclock. Have you searched for any reviews, CoLdGlOom?

Yes i did.

And that's another problem. Since the values are so similar there is no comparisation with each other. At least i havent found...  [:S]

It certainly seems they are both the same card except they just overclock it for you.  If that is truly the case I would go for the cheaper one which I expect is the regular one and overclock it yourself.

I agree with that point of view. Seems logical to me...[^o)]

You might want to visit NewEgg's website HERE and click on the FEEDBACK tab to see what other users wrote about that OC version, CoLdGLOoM.
