Asus makes good cards. so does XFX.. but with the ASUS they do RMA by serial number so you can resell and maintain warranty.

I'd go with Asus before MSI or XFX. MSI is by far the lowest quality of them all.

MSI, XFX, then Asus currently... XFX support is awful and they got rid of their lifetime warranty, Asus is having issues with the 79xx series currently, and MSI is just beast they have a 3 year serial warranty and they have the lightening which is nade with MUCH higher quality parts.

considering 3 are out of stock. you're stuck with either the MSI or XFX. The XFX has more and better reviews. They also offer the double warranty so I would go with that.

MSI has the easier warranty since it's transferable and it will sell much sooner than a non-trasnferable card.

They wouldn't know or any other company except tricksters like xfx and powercolor who are sometimes even more devious. That aside, if you break the card it doesn't matter anyways.
