    There's a £23 price difference between these atm. I know the 850 is clocked higher but the Powercolor 800 boasts highly clockable. Would there be any difference really between the cards?

    They pretty much all clock to X850XTPE speeds.

    BUT you could be stung with a dud. For the sake of £23, get the X850XT and OC that. If money's tight, take the risk.

    The GTO uses the same R480 core. Get that and buy a Zalman VF700 to cool it along with some AS5.
