That's what I was thinking... I always see XFX costing more than eVGA it seems to me.

On Newegg, that is. That's generally where I always browse.

Yeah, but wouldn't the Lamborghini be more exotic, and the computer more reliable?
really? It's cheaper here, I would go with the eVGA sorry

I'd go with the BFG just because I use to own one and it's lasting, also with PNY

The eVGA is more expensive because it's a GTX, not a GTS. Which, by the way, is definently worth the extra money.

Well, I've never had a BFG, but I did have an XFX....so I have to say XFX

BFG cards come pre-oc'd, and with a plretty plain and simple HS (sticker) design. They have a good RMA service, and lifetime warranty.

XFX cards seem to be a bit 'flashier' looking than others. Not sure about their warranty and RMA service.

eVGA's warranties are quite different to other brands, in that they let you do more without voiding the warranty. They also have the stepup program.

Personally, i will NEVER buy ANYTHING from eVGA, after how they treated their customers regarding to not being able to stepup to the 8 series. Comapines shouldn't be allowed to do stuff like that.

A brand name no-one seems to have mentioned as of yet: Asus.

Although they mainly make motherboards, they also make graphics cards. In most cases they offer different cooling solutions, and often overclock better.

That was a rumor, and a false one. You can step up to the G80. But even if you couldn't, no one else allows the step up, so is it really that bad for them to put conditions on it?
