ASUS has introduced a device that allows you to dial in an overclock (http://www.pcstats.com/releaseview.cfm?releaseID=1693)  on your graphics card.  This device fits in a spare 5.25" bay and greatly simplifies overclocking.  I have no doubt that a seasoned enthusiast will be able to get more performance by tweaking manually, but this would be handy in a game if you needed a little extra performance.

   With an easy-to-read mirro. . .

Sounds a bit gimicky, sorta like the Turbo button back in the day, Its probably one of those things that for the first month you use regularly just because, but then you finally just set it to the max and forget about it.

But I do give Asus credit for trying something new, unlike most GPU rebranders who just slap on a different cooler and try to convince you that they have a better card than the next guy
