I personally run EVGA cards only. I've had incredibly good luck with them, and the support team is amazing. I had a card die on me over a weekend, (Warranty Expired Monday), they replaced my card 9800GTX+, and upgraded me to a free 200s series card, included shipping in it.

Honestly, I'd have to say Gigabyte / MSI. I personally, don't like ASUS. I've had a TON of problems with ASUS, the only thing that hasn't broken on me is my DVD Drive, and I rarely use that. My MOBO from ASUS was a piece of crap, ROG. After 9 months, I had overheating problems, sensors failed, and ended up ruining my MOBO. Couldn't get warranty on it, because I couldn't find their damn site. Point is, go with what you feel is a good choice. You can debate the stats on something till you're old and grey, but you'll never know if you don't give it a chance. Personally, I'd buy a cheaper card to hold me over, and wait for EVGA cards.

Get the Windforce G1 version very powerful
yes I have my eye on it too looks pretty badass card but is it better than Asus Strix???
I have to say it is and with EVGA right now people are having sick issues atm supposedly don't know how true also Gigabyte improved their cards all around the best right now


I would say asus is cool too but the gigabyte is better Hey Noober didn't you sell your Asus 780ti because it sucked for a Kingpin just saying lol
