Id go for eVGA for the step-up program and the warranty.

If i were you i would just go with the cheapest one i can find. However if the EVGA one is around the cheapest i would get it over other ones if you are planning on upgrading in the next (90?) days because of the step up program. That or XFX because of there warrenty services.

BFG also has the 100-day trade-up program and I think a lifetime warranty also.

EVGA/XFX/BFG is my first choices. All have lifetime warranty, EVGA and BFG have stepup program.

yeh i have two of them and to be honest i would have preferred going for a eVGA or XFX instead ... the cooler is awesome keeps dow the temps, but you cannot upgrade the bios on the Asus card .. you have to install a third party application to monitor the temps, and as soon as you sli the cards you can no longer measure the temps through the 4rd part application ... hope this helps

I'd personally go for either evga/xfx/bfg mainly because of the great warranties backing up their product. You never know when it can go out, especially with computer hardware. I looked through the site and noticed this card which is an XFX with a Zalman cooler. Price can be $139.99 if the rebate is accepted. We all know the pain with rebates sometimes.


PROS: Zalman seems to know what they are doing when it comes to Heatsinks/fans. If that isn't the case, EVGA's warranty is there to back it up.

CONS: Fans can get pretty dirty or clogged therefore causing an increase in temps. Maintenance can go a long way.

Hope I've been helpful.

OH WOW, I saw where you are from and I saw quite a surprise. My parents are from Monterrey N.L. as well. VIVA LOS RAYADOS!!!

$152 is about the average price for 8800GT now. Personally, I would take advantage of evga setup program especially if you upgrade quite often.
