If its a deal and a bargain for my new system (please see new rig plans) then give me the nod and I will purrr-chase 2 tomorrow after work )

Not too bad at all!

The AMP probably means it is factory overclocked.

The AMP version is pre overcloked, hence faster than the non AMP version and is £40 cheaper.

That doesn't make any sense business wise lol. 700/1700/2000 is a good oc and u will still be covered by the warranty at those speeds.

After a quick search the cheapest 8800GT 512mb I could find was £100 for a Club 3D @ stock speeds, so £5 more for a pre overclocked version is good.

The 8800GTS 512mb is the card up from the 8800GT 512mb and the cheapest I can find that is £137.63 + p&p for a Zotac 8800GTS 512mb AMP Edition (only a quick search).

I find that This VGA Chart is great for comparing graphics cards including SLI, you can compare 8800GT 512mb OC SLI against a 8800GTS 512mb OC for example.
