If i had a choice i would chose EVGA over asus anyday, purely because of their reputation. The warranty is also a strong selling point for me.

580 > 570 so if you got the money, why not. Especially considering by the sounds of it your going to keep it for a few years. Dont SLI in 2-3 years though, just upgrade by that time.
EVGA changed their warranty....check their website on with the UPC code and it will tell you how long the warranty is for..Some of them are still lifetime, however no longer all the time...

I would still choose EVGA over ASUS just because I like the way their cards look and it seems that they have wonderful Customer service if you ever need to use it.

The warranty is good when selling cards. A good amount of people upgrade often or even with every generation. Warranty based on serial takes the hassle out of things. EVGA warranty is not transferable and requires an invoice. A seller would then have to assist the person who buys the card with the RMA if it is needed. I personally don't want anything to do with an item once I have sold it and has arrived in good working order.

I prefer Asus, MSI, and Gigabyte over EVGA

My Asus P5N-E/D gave me nothing but problems, so I can't say I have anything good to say about them. But after 2 boards, and 3 video cards from EVGA, well, I can say nothing but praise for them. All of those products still work, and they will continue to until I need to RMA it but eh not worried, lifetime warranty.

this is not a fair comparison. those boards were crap anyway, I know because i have one. and this is about video cards....

your feedback is invalid.

EVGA is a great company, makes reliable qaulity cards. Love the back plates, high flow brackets. AR - warranty. Exceptional customer service and great forum community.

Check out this thread on their 500 Series forums section. Not many companies have this much support.

I've owned others that are good companies too, like MSI and ASUS. All three make good video cards and mother boards. Can't complain, but owning an EVGA comes with a lot of pride.
