Did I do a stupid buy? Zotac Vs. EVGA 590 - Page 3

post #21 of 30
keep it
all 590 are made on the same factory so there is no difference between them. evga one even could be worse at overclock.
no difference. at all

also it is hot only in hands growing from a$

If they're the same price and you don't have to pay restocking fees then trade for the EVGA

EVGA make the best NVidia cards IMHO

Keep it! Just overclock it BEYOND the EVGA one and enjoy!

you can keep it. overclock it, and get the same performance. I do believe that EVGA is the better card though. Plus better warranty.

Thanks for all the responses guys. I decided to order the EVGA board. Im just that kind of guy that wouldn't sleep well knowing I didn't get the best. Getting the second best is simply not just good enough for me on this matter.

They're the same cards underneath the stickers; no reason to return it. The measly factory-overclock on the EVGA one is laughable. lol, you're expecting some phenomenal performance increase from a 23MHz increase? And as if you can't overclock the Zotac card yourself?
