Good post, but missing a few major brands. smile.gif

  • Palit (US/Asia) / Gainward (EU): Very solid customer support (speaking from experience) and on the Gainward side, innovative, high end, non-ref cooling solutions. (Check out their Phantom line)
  • Galaxy (US/Asia) / KFA2 (EU): Usually the cheapest prices available in the US with their massive rebates (sometimes $50 or more). I haven't used them personally, so I can't say how good they are with honoring them, or how well their coolers perform.
  • Sparkle (World Wide): Good source of inexpensive reference cards. I have one of their low profile GT430s in an HTPC, no complaints so far. Their Calibre series usually come equipped with Arctic Cooling's Accelero coolers, which are about as good as aftermarket cooling gets before water.
  • Colorful (EU/Asia): Recently made news with the most powerful 560 Ti released to date (factory OC'd to 1010 core) ---> http://www.techpowerup.com/154959/Colorful-Launches-the-Most-Powerful-and-Feature-Rich-GeForce-GTX-560-Ti.html
  • ECS: Known as aone of the biggest OEM manufacturers in motherboards worldwide. They've recently made a resurgence in the retail GPU market with high end reference cards.
  • Inno3D (EU only): No experience with them, but I see a few people around here with them listed in their sigs. Maybe they can give you feedback.

And if you're including BFG, you might as well mention XFX. thumb.gif

Awesome post! thanks for the suggestion i will definitely add all of these brands tonight!! I am glad you liked the guide! Thank you!
BTW main reason i didnt add these brands is because this is just a noobs guide and i mainly wanted to cover the basics. I am glad you guys are helping me make this guide more complete! This guide will never be finished and is always open to revisions/suggestions. So if you think i should add then please post!!

Update 6: MASSIVE update to the brands section. Added 7 new brands. Also added hyperlinks to every brands' website!! Updated table of contents. Also gave credit in the guide to those who have made suggestions. Anyone who makes suggestions that get into the guide from this point forth will get credit in the guide!

Wow. This guide is amazing. I stumbled across this on google and read the whole thing. It was so good I felt the need to make an account on this site so i could tell everyone how good it is, and give the OP a +rep. For a noob like me, this helped a lot. U guys should really sticky this. Thanks for the awesome guide!
