Now the question most enthusiasts will be asking, did you get any ideas as to how either card overclocked?

It seems slightly misleading and people not realising that the BFG card was overclocked will go out and buy a cheaper, stock 7600GT and expect a similar level of performance. I came out of the review not knowing how a stock 7600GT would perform, with the only indication being towards the end when you mention the 1800GTO is slightly faster... not very informative by any stretch of the imagination.
I feel that when an overclocked card is reviewed, it would be nice to include a comparison of it against a reference board in addition to any other cards on test.
Just my 2cents...

Meh, by then AM2 will be out and they'll be secondhand 939 pci-e boards two a pennie.
