When I am searching for a GPU, I tend to purchase for warranty coverage because all cards will perform similarly, even when overclocked (unless you get lucky and get a beast of an overclocker). To that end, XFX and EVGA are very good brands. Furthermore, XFX often has pre-overclocked versions of cards that fall under the same dual lifetime warranty. I would go with either XFX or EVGA for the warranty reasons.

Exactly what I was going to say.

Yeah, I've always like the eVGA warranty program. Plus, I like the fact that their packaging isn't overly flashy.

I'm a graduate student, and I develop HPC codes in Fortran and Matlab to make the world better.
