Well actually I can not give you an advise on that.
I don't play nfs, and I didn't test it also.

180 was a nice number don't you think
rule of thumb for the omega drivers: more features, more quality/performance options, at default same performance, at highest quality setttings a little slower then catalyst @ high settings, due to the omega upping the bar a nudge higher.
