EVTGA 680 FTW vs SUPERCLOCKED?

Which one is better for the bang for the buck? Is there any difference other than the FTW is a little faster? Is the FTW only overlocked? Can you just overclock it yourself to match that? Or does the FTW have some extra features?

the differences are in the clock speed and your paying extra for a card that can run at those clocks.
remember with overclocking every chip can reach different speeds. it depends on the quality of the silicon used in making the chip.

go the 4gb edition newer games seem to be going the way of minimum 2gb video ram required. it will last you longer.
in regards to the cards, look for the higher core clocks
but in reality the overclock would only result in an extra 2-5 frames per second.

i don't know the prices your looking at paying so i can't tell you which is the best bang for your buck.

if you haven't done overclocking before, pay the extra. to put it simply, as long as its not more then 80$ in my opinion.
