That 8800GT is only a 256MB I thought it was a 512MB card. I also want a 600W OCZ Stealthstreme., but have to wait.

No, it's the 512MB version.

I saw the same but XT at 234.72$. Is the difference only the overclocking (600-->640 1.8-->1.9)?

If I buy the non-XT and overclock them, Is it the same card?

The only difference is the XT (extreme edition) is overclocked, if you buy the non-XT you could overclock. You could spend the extra $14 and get the XT version and then overclock that to the XXX version.

Could I overclock the non-XT edition to the XXX settings?

Which are the best 8800gt in EVGA and XFX brands?

That cooler looks almost identical to the one on my older 7950GT...which doesn't work very well on its own.

Don't go by the photo of the card. I went by the part number.

PV-T88P-YHF4 - 512MB version

PV-T88P-UHF4 - 256MB version

No worries. I think I might go for the XT version for an extra $14.00
