In the UK its a 10 year warranty.

If you aren't overclocking too much the normal EVGA cards are fine.

Just a heads up, seems like the regular evga gtx 580s can overclock better than the gtx 580 superclocked models.
I usually got the SC versions, my fermi SC models have disappointed.
Evga seems to bin backwards now, the SC model comes pre-overclocked for the folks who don't OC further, while the vanilla models are lower VID & clock higher overall. At least in my experience, & I have seen a few other posts from people who have seen the same.

I agree. My superclocked cards do not seem to overclock as well as other 560's I have seen.

EVGA for sure. Customer service in Europe is just great. It's quick and responsive. Had to RMA my GTX 580, got it back within one and a half weeks, even though the branch is in Germany.

With the rebate they dropped $50 usd. The rebate is temporary. The price dropped $20 without.

Does the effective memory have anything to do with it?

The SC has 4050 MHz (effective) and the vanilla 4008 MHz (effective).

I'm asking because why would I pay more for EVGA to send me an already over clocked card? I can OC myself. I feel taken somewhat if that's true.

When I first bought mine, I was told on OCN by multiple people they provide the better binned ram on SC because they warranty for lifetime to run my card at that higher clock and guarantee it.

My highest clock is @912 with 1.1v on the card for 6902 3D Mark 11 benchmark. "Proof" on air.

Also if anyone would know about over clocking FTX420 would, he's our highest clocked member on Nvidia GeForce GTX 500 Series Ownder Club to date w/580 under water @ 1106mhz!

Thank you for the clarification! I was thinking about buying EVGA for the first time when its necessary to get my next video card upgrade and this will help a ton.

I always thought EVGA would bin higher on the OC cards since they need to be guaranteed to run at those heightened clock speeds... Just seemed logical to me for them to be binned that way.

Actually the memory on 2 of my vanilla cards also overclocks higher than the SC, the third one's memory is about the same as the SC.
The 1100Mhz core was ln2 cooled, I still have to hardmod some 580s to get more out of them...

Congrats bud on your choice of vendor. It's a great card and under water it's awesome.
