XFX brands their overclocked graphics cards as XXX; but if EVGA can use FTW, then I guess it isn't too inappropriate.  Both the 260 and the 280 models are available, and [H]ard|OCP benchmarked them on a system with a QX9770 overclocked to 3.6GHz.  They even managed to get a bit of an overclock out of these factory overclocked cards, which may put a sparkle in the eyes of some enthusiasts.  Drop by to see how they stack up against the HD4870 and HD4780 X2.
