found one for the same price as the Gigabyte G1....but I heard the gigabytes were the best overclockers.
Nothing wrong with the Evga card ... BUT especially if your sticking with air-cooling, there is no comparison up against the G1, at any price difference much less if they are the same price! Their cooling, power phase delivery etc are all superior! With the possible exception of the Ln2 class cards, but I don't think that is of interest here?
I had been a fairly loyal Evga guy since my 1st custom build with an Evga Ti4200 appx 14 years ago, when I decided to jump ship and purchased a Gigabyte G1 980Ti almost exactly a year ago. No regrets at all, except maybe if I ever have to deal with customer service, as Evga was excellent in that department, and I have no experience w/RMA's and Gigabyte, maybe that says a lot right there? As far as being the better overclocker, that really still depends on the silicon lottery. But I can tell you last summer when the 980Ti's were all the rage, the G1's were consistently clocking between 1500-1600MHz generally outperforming all the rest in every category!
