    I should buy it, and make a video of me freezing it in my LN2 once it gets here and crashing it into a million pieces, just to spite EVGA. Sorry guys I know you love it, but I don't, and I have a strange sense of humor.

    I dunno, but whenever I hear the name EVGA it makes me think Alienware. Overpriced equipment. Nothing personal but all their products seem to be 100% more than their counterparts yet have the same specs...so what exactly is the extra cash for? The namebrand?

    I don't understand all your hatred for EVGA Ralph. I also don't think they are more expensive, yes the real special additions carry a premium but that's with everything in life.

    Me and Steve both have EVGA Classified 780s and think they are an excellent card. They come with some higher grade parts than others but at the time of me buying mine it was no more expensive than any other non reference 780.

    When I was looking on newegg yesterday for 780s and 770s for you after I saw you had ordered a 680 both the links I provided were of EVGA cards and they were actually among the cheapest I could find on Newegg.

    I am not sure if you are not liking EVGA solely based on the crazy Kingpin edition which to be honest is not a normal GPU, but for regular models I really don't think that they are any more expensive than their competitors.

    I've never owned an EVGA card but they must be good otherwise so many people wouldn't swear by them as a manufacturer. A lot of people will only buy EVGA card's so they must be doing something right.

    Edit: I lied... The card in my daughters rig is an EVGA Gtx 460 and still plodding on

    What's a reference card and how do you know it is? I've not seen an ad saying "This is a reference card".

    Just the stock card from either AMD or Nvidia with the standard cooler.

    Yeah as Ryan says Gary, for example here is one of each.

    Reference one (These are released first and although they can all be different brands they will all look identical)

    Non reference (All kinds of different coolers)

    Ok, I understand now.
    I notice the Kingpin 780 and other 780 Classified cards are a lot wider/taller than the mounting bracket.
