There is a huge performance increase from the 8600GTS to the 8800GTS. To give you a rough estimate: The 8500GT has 16 stream processors, the 8600GTS has 32 stream processors, while the 8800GTS has 96 stream processors (the 8800GTX has 128). No manner of overclocking is going to make up for that lack of hardware.
