Default XFX 8800GT XT Alpha Dog 640MHz/1900MHz ~ Anyone have one?

And if so, how's the performance. I'm gonna be mainly gaming so of course I wanna hear about Crysis. I had,and just sold, an XFX 8800GTS 320MB and that was able to max every game @ 1680x1050 except for, of course, crysis. I still got about 35-40FPS in most areas on crysis with everything at high at that res except for shaders and textures.

Case: NZXT Lexa, or if I like the new Silverstone Su-01 mATX i just ordered! :D
Power: OCZ Modstream 450w (upgrading to ? when e8400 is ordered)
Board: ASUS P5E-VM mATX (hear its an insane OC'er)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 1.8GHz (hopefully OC'ed around 3GHz+)
RAM: 4x1GB Crucial Rendition DDR2-667 (around 800MHz)
Video: XFX 8800GTS XT Alpha Dog Edition 640MHz Core / 1900MHz Mem. (OC?)
HDD: Western Digital Raptor 150GB 10Krpm
Sound: Auzentech X-fi Prelude 7.1

Crysis and WiC are the only two to bring mine down

I run every game at full settings and will always max out at 75 cause I've turned on vsync otherwise things like Crysis at medium settings will run about 25-35 fps depending on whats happening on screen.

I found I have been playing COD4 lately and the fps are around 55-60 average with the console fps enabled,(1280x1024) didn't keep it up too long though as I found it very distracting. I seemed to be looking at the fps more than paying attention to the game... The game plays awesome, smooth all the way through till the end. I have tried the console in multi-player but it just shows 99fps all the time, even with my old 8600 it showed 99fps on-line, which could only get 20-25 fps in single player... I don't think it is accurate in on-line play?

I have the 625 mhz alpha dog, and a q6600 with 3 gigs of 667 ram.<-stupid 32 bit vista> I thought about overclocking it to the xxx specs but it's fast enough for me at stock speeds with temps under 60 under load.

specs for card:
