imo, lifetime warranties are a waste since most manufacturers offer either 2 or 3 year warranties and chances are, that in 3 years time you'll have a new GPU anyway.
So I say just get the cheapest which is usually the Palit or Gainward.
Totally agree, both are pretty good brands as well, just look at the benches but regardless u'll have a monster of a card neways....so in that case it goes to which looks best lol. (then theres always 3 slot vs 2 slot....havent really looked at the cards lol)
Just saw above post....forgot about the lightning extreme lol (HOW COULD I?!?!) but IMO i'd def recommend that over any other card. Personal choice and that it overclocks like a champ (if its like the reg lightning)
