I suppose I am mentioning this because of the poor overclocking of this card...
Overclocking experiences seem to vary a lot between some retail CPU and ES, which is likely the problem here (though keep in mind SKTMTL didn't use third party over clocking software). As for overall performance, I don't think it would vary much between card, if at all.
