EVGA or ASUS? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
I would probably go for EVGA, from my experience they are very reliable.

I dealt with both companies. Asus takes longer to process what you need but they are more lax about thing. EVGA's customer service replies to you almost immediately but they are very strict about warranty and stuff.

Only to the extent it's for original customers. Come on, they let you install watercoolers, overclock and tweak voltage, the latter two of which will void most warranties.

I have actually had better luck with ASUS lasting longer. The last 2 EVGA products I owned ended up popping capacitors. Doesn't mean I'd not buy EVGA again. Sometimes parts wear out/fail etc. It happens. As far as customer service, I have nothing but good things to say about ASUS customer service. The 1 time I had to deal with them they were really helpful and responded to my questions with an hour or 2. Like I said before, they are both good companies. I'm sure you would be happy with either brand. I mainly chose ASUS over other brands for my last 2 graphics cards for their Direct CU line of coolers (+ they just look awesome)

x_X this is gonna be a hard decision to be made lol

evga -> good reputation, good customer service, warranty, higher clocked than asus
asus -> better cooling system on the 550 (look here) -> better performance?

A 550 will see zero benefit from more than 1Gb of VRAM unless you do rendering work or whatever other programs that eat up VRAM but aren't very computationally demanding. But that is completely useless for gaming.
