Brain hurts... which 8800GTS? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Normally I would suggest evga as well. I've had great luck and great overclocks with their cards, as a rule of thumb. I've owned: 7800GT, 7900GS, 7950GT, 8800GTS 320, 8800GT, *ALL* evga, and I've never dealt with customer service once. Oh, and I overclock like a madman, always

This being said, however, due to the price I got on my bfg 8800GTS 512, I went with them this time, and I have to say ... I am really impressed with how this card OC's (see sig below). And I think the decal is cooler on it than on the evga ...

So ... between those two, I'm frankly torn. I don't think you can go wrong with either one frankly. I don't think I'd choose MSI, not because I know anything bad about their products, but rather cause I've never owned one of their products.

Oh, and I own The Witcher. I've tried, but I just can't get into it. The combat is clunky, the voice-acting cheesy, and I cannot even muster the slightest bit of 'caring' about what's supposedly 'going on' in the game world. In short, I prefer Oblivion, afa games in that genre go. I'd say for your first RPG experience, get Oblivion.

A lot of other people like Witcher, though, so ... who knows?

I'd say eVGA for their great OCing ability, warranty, and superb customer service, not to mention their Step-Up policy.
