Just ordered the AIW Radeon 8500DV

from newegg. OEM Bulk packaging. It's supposed to be the true BB ATI card, 250/250 core/mem only difference is no box, and no games for $235 shipped. I've been waiting for the regular 8500 to drop in price, but with all the extras this board offers and that killer price, I couldn't pass it up!

Does anyone know about the overclocking abilities of this card? Probably won't worry about it for a while because it's going to offer a huge performance boost for me right now(I'm still using a TnT2 Ultra right now) but was curious if it would be able to obtain 275/275. Also, I thought the AIW was supposed to be clocked at 230/230. I'll let everyone know the scoop on that when I get it.
