Set on a reference Nvidia GTX 780 ti graphics card... But which manufacturer???

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am planning on getting two Nvidia GTX 780 ti graphic cards or my water-cooled setup and prefer the reference design for more water block options. I am torn between EVGA and ASUS and was hoping to get some opinions based on either personal experience and/ or reputation. Thanks all.

Since you cleared the option of getting nonreference designs, choosing a card simply comes down to the manufacturer's warranty and service.
Between Asus and EVGA, there is simply no comparison, imho. EVGA hands down. Fantastic warranty and service. Not gushing over EVGA, I swear. wink.gif

Thank you for the quick response. I wasn't sure if the build quality was the same or if one manufacturer used higher quality capacitors than the other. Anyway thank you again smile.gif

Reference cards should be the same regardless of brand.

One bonus for you is that EVGA rma's cards to California as I see that listed as your state.

My vote would have to go to EVGA based on RMA stories posted here on OCN plus my own personal RMA/Step ups done with them.

Another vote for EVGA here. They replaced my 780Ti that had coil whine no problem. Not all companies will do that

As long as it's Nvidia then always gotta bet on EVGA.
