    Most overclockable $100-$200 video card?

    So, what is it? A 5900FX? 9800 Pro? 9600 Pro? 9700 Pro? 5700 Ultra? Of all those cores, which specific model and manufacturer (Sapphire, BFG, etc.) is the best? What about cooling?

    Thanks for any help guys.

    EDIT; What is the best utility to use for overclocking?

    ti4200

    at one point was best bang for the buck on toms hardware..but the stupid mx440s have dropped to much in price

    im currently @ +88mhz ram, +42mhz gpu on my 4200, with stock cooling, as i cant take off the HSF on my xtasy

    as for overclocking, I use powerstrip, very easy to change settings on the fly

    The Nvidia 5900XT cards have been overclocking well over the 5950Ultra speeds.

    I've also seen amazing work with the 9800 Pros OC over the 9800XTs.

    Benchmarks: Aquamark - 40416 ; 3dMark01 - 18056
