Evega or xfx 780i?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i think i might pick up my 780i today. The store has the xfx model and the evga model. Evga model = 249.99 xfx model= 269.99.
Which one do you guys think i should get, any bad experiences with either?
Do they both overclock quads alright?
Does one run hotter than the other??

Thx

They are from same OEM so I would go for the Evga 780i one.

eVGA offers a lifetime warranty on their 780i-A1 board, and a 2 year warranty on the 780i-T1. I would recommend eVGA A1 (I havent seen any T1s at retail yet).

But the boards are made by Foxconn and are badged by the companies. So I would go eVGA, like Linskingdom says, for their lifetime warranty. Plus eVGA's customer support is without equal!
