Niether of those three. In my opinion, MSI or ASUS, or Gigabyte. In that order.

I've had great experience with EVGA but I can fully understand why you'd feel that way. Sorry to hear about your misfortune.

If you had to go with these three, I'd opt for Zotac. They seem to be a better company.

I don't trust Galaxy much, and Zotac offers a "Lifetime" Warranty. So go for Zotac.

I went from 896MB 260's to 1.5GB 580's and thought it was great... for a short while. Now I have no worries whatsoever. Yes, I had to spend for it, but I feel it's justified as the rest of my rig is up to the challenge so it only made sense to do this as well.

I couldn't be happier. It will be a while until I need more than what I now have.

Galaxy 570 (2 Year)
PNY 570 (1 Year)
Zotac 570 (Lifetime Warranty)

Which one is the most reliable?
To be quite honest, if you are looking for reliability in the part itself, GTX 570 cards aren't notorious for that. There have been a number of cases where the card just up and died for no apparent reason, without even being pushed hard, or at all. I used to own a pair of vanilla 570's from EVGA, and they were fine for me right up until I was about to send them in for Step Up. I then started running into artifacting issues, after a mere 4 months of ownership.

If you are looking for reliability within the Fermi family, I would seriously suggest looking to spend the extra money for a GTX 580 or find another GTX 560 Ti. Don't get me wrong, both cards can also have untimely deaths as well, no matter whose label is on the box, like what you've experienced already - as sometimes it's just luck of the draw - but you'll have much better chances of getting a reliable, long-lasting card compared to the 570.

I'm not sure of your situation nor how you came to upgrade to the GTX 570HD (through Step Up/RMA from the 560 Ti?), but if you're intent on getting a replacement, I would give EVGA another chance to make it right. They have some of the best customer support in the industry and have come through for a lot of people, in the end, resulting in loyal, life-long customers. Since you already paid for that warranty support, you might as well make use of it. If this next replacement also dies as well, you either have REALLY bad luck, or there may be an underlying issue in your system that is killing your GPU's - most likely the PSU, yes, even though it is a Corsair .

However, if you really don't want to deal with EVGA and still want to stick with the GTX 570, of those three manufacturers that you listed, I would go with either Galaxy or Zotac, in that order. Galaxy has a presence on other forums and have shown that they can offer great customer support on their parts should you need it. Zotac is nice in that they offer a lifetime warranty for peace of mind, however, I haven't heard of good, nor fast, experiences with their support so take it for what it is.

PNY is pretty average for the most part. They're not bad, but not great either, however, that 1 year warranty may hang you in the end should your card happen to die right after that warranty period is up. Unless if you plan on replacing your card before that happens, I would not recommend them, nor any other company offering just 1 year of support; especially if we're talking a volatile part as the 570.

Like Arizonian mentioned, Asus and MSI are great companies that deserve some consideration as they manufacture 570's (and 580's) that have custom PCB's with much more robust power circuitry - something that the reference 570 is sorely lacking and is pretty much the main reason most of them die so quickly.

I apologize for the essay, but hopefully this can be of some use to you.

Is this for all games that you play or only for a handful of them? I remember you talked about how GTA and Crysis with mods showed great differences. Are there any others that you have come across in particular where there was an improvement?

I just want to get a feel for what to expect, as a possible future upgrade after my current project will either be a third 1.5GB GTX580, switching up to 3GB cards, or just waiting for Kepler. I'm leaning towards waiting since I don't really play Crysis and the like anymore, and vanilla GTA runs well enough for me now, but I still could be swayed.

Well, what games are you particularly interested in? If I've got them I can run them and report back. I mean, Dead Space 2 doesn't even touch 1GB even with AA, so it really depends on the game.

For me, the wow factor is that even though some of my games are utilizing more than the 1.5GB cards could, which was the goal, I've got a VERY nice vram cushion to prepare me for upcoming games like BF3 because there is still over 1.2-1.5GB left to use. Not to mention the raw power that is the GTX580 regardless of vram capacity.

Lately, all I have been playing are Shift 2: Unleashed and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. Surprisingly, Shift 2 has been pretty demanding, which prompted me to overclock my GPU's to compensate. I don't think more VRAM will matter for this game as it hovers around the 1.2-1.3GB range, but if you have it, could you test that one out for me just to make sure, please?

Assassin's Creed, on the other hand, has played very well in the 50-60fps range all throughout. I haven't seen any VRAM issues on that though.

Other than that, I suppose I will also be waiting to see how demanding BF3 will be as well since everything else has been playing fine.
