The Foxconn 8800GT OC Standard isn't anything too out of the ordinary. It's a simple formula, yet a formula that works very well. You get the stock cooler, increase the clocks a little, make it a little pretty and ship it out at a competitive price.
The Foxconn card on a whole is pretty good; its formula is simple and it works. The card runs great out of the box, but with the mild overclock it doesn't stand out all the time against the HD 3870 and the overclocked 9600GT.
If you didn't want to overclock and you wanted some higher clocks you could go to one of the two models above this one and it would give you that extra speed bump out of the box that you might want.
With that said though, if you're not going to notice much of an increase outside of just looking at the raw numbers then the above could be argued. Availability on the card seems good and price is pretty standard for the offering which means its value for money is high as usual.
The newer 9800 series of cards are due out within the month, so it will be interesting to see if 8800 sales slow down even though we don't expect the 9800GTX to launch with aggressive pricing like where the 8800GT is currently at.
