I didn't buy it because it was an OC card, I bought it because at the time it was the cheapest 8800GTS.

Yeah that is an option. I thought of that b4. But when i looked for results of crysis on crossfired 3850 there were non cus of a driver issue but in everything else the 3850's are about equal to a gtx. Im just worried about games being optimized for nvidia. I can afford it but i wantted to spend around what i said but that will be ok.
