The turbo version of the gigabyte with the heatpipe is clocked at 1190Mhz. Its the only model you can buy its a fairly hard card to find. Leadteks are good but they are pretty cheapy lookin cards the cooler on it is crap and its general quality could be better.
In terms of consoles, they are fully optimised machines meant only to play games meant for them. You dont get the flexibility in a console which is half the reason to buy a pc. IF you have seen a decent overclocked 6800Ultra the graphics really are about as good as a console, it gets to a point where only another machine can tell the difference in quality. There are also alot of tricks console makers use to make things better.
The unreal engine is obviously goin to run well, as the newer engines have to be very scalable look at source engine it is of the same calibre as unreal and runs on cards down to 3-4 series unreal will probably run on everything above 5 series.
