Which 8800GTS to get? - Page 2

post #11 of 39
EVGAs are great overclockers, great customer support, easy RMA (it does happen in any company), and I've never had any problems with their products. I have a EVGA 8800GTS and it's great .

eVGA because they have lifetime warranty, step up program, and putting on waterblocks/aftermarket coolers is covered by your warranty.

I've used BFG and XFX cards before, which were decent, but there's no topping EVGA - lifetime warranty, cross shipping, responsive support. Go for them.

all are made by same people (nvidia) but XFX BFG MSI POV are all diffreent manufacturers, out of all manufacturers XFX and BFG are the best simply because they have the best made boards and other components such as capacitors, memory modules and suchas, they also have the best overclcking capability, XFX has the best OCing cap, BFG are second in line

EVGA <3 Seriously, luv lifetime warranty + step up, or the XFX one, they have the same, but 2+ games. BFG, we don't have that over here in Norway

What's step up?
And XFX has double lifetime warranty, so I guess that would make the card easier to sell if I wanted to.

Step up is where you buy one card, say an 8800GT, then you go to EVGA, and pay only the difference in cost between that card and the next card you want to upgrade to (say, the 9800GTX)..

So the GT costs £150, the GTX costs (i dont actually know) say £250, you'd only pay £100 to upgrade yourself to a better card..

Get me?


Oh and i've heard XFX's warrantee's are brilliant, and is why i currently own 2 diffrent XFX cards.

If you buy an EVGA card, you have 90 days to send it into EVGA, and they will send you what ever more expensive video card you want. You have to pay the difference of how much you paid for the first card, and the new card. BFG Tech does the same thing, except it's called Trade Up and you have 10 more days than EVGA (100 if you're bad at math). BFG also has a better RMA. You don't need to register your card for it! Also, if your card is no longer in production, they will send you the best next card.
