It really doesn't matter, UNLESS you are talking about warranty. Although I know a few gripe about EVGA, you cannot take away how well EVGA runs internal control. RMA's and product registration are easy to setup, the shipping is ungodly fast, and they have excellent customer support. Everybody here can say that: In general
, EVGA has the best customer service.
Although I myself, have had trouble with EVGA's products in the past, I still love them to death because of those above mentioned qualities (This is after experiencing customer service from Asus, MSI, gigabyte, Zotac).
As far as ATI/AMD is concerned, my best experience has to be from Gigabyte and Asus. Shipping is fairly quick, although their RMA process is not as user friendly as EVGA's.

All the reviews laud the 6870 on much better scaling than its predecessors. For a card that is supposed to be slower than a 5870, it is actually faster in CF because of how well it scales.Edited by youra6 - 11/14/10 at 10:44am
