Big time nooob question??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
You know how there are different companies that use ATI & NVIDIA in manufacturing graphics cards. (EX:XFX, Foxconn, Dell, Samsung) I understand they probably are just using the ATI and NVIDIA components. But, is there any difference between these companies.

Like, would a Dell ATI card be different from a Samsung ATI card with like specs? (This is just an example)

evga 8800gtx vs pny 8800gtx ?

whats the difference in that? not much except a few overclocking abilities, and one of them will perform SLIGHTLY better than the other

As far as I know they all pretty much go by ATI/Nvidia reference designs for the layout of the PCB and components. Other than that, just the BIOS's and HSF tend to differ, though some manufacturers use higher quality components, apart from the GPU's themselves.
