GTX 570 EVGA vs Gigabyte

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
So on newegg, people buying GTX 570 mostly get the EVGA brand rather than Gigabyte, is there a reason for that?
Also, if I had to pick the EVGA brand, should I buy the superclocked version or the original? Does superclock imply that its maximum overclock capability will be higher than the original's?

I have no problems with my Gigabyte video card, but to each their own. Some choose eVGA because of their awesome tech support, step up program, and lifetime warranties.

And I remember seeing somewhere on here that the Superclocked cards have better binning, meaning that it may be a better overall overclocker than the non overclocked. I don't think their is much claim in that, but some people were talking about it.

I would find it for you but I am trying to study for finals. Lol.

They're reference cards, so there's no difference in performance.

To be honest, both EVGA and Gigabyte are very solid manufacturers. The choice at this point comes down to customer service and warranties.

I am very loyal to EVGA. They always treat me right and go above and beyond, so that's why I picked them for my 580. The SuperClocked version is just a slight factory OC. You could easily go higher... it's generally not worth the extra money unless you care. The true benefit to a factory OC is that the clock that it is sold at is covered under the warranty.

The only reason I picked up the SuperClocked 580s in my sig is because the normal ones were sold out at the time and I refused to buy from any other manufacturer.

I'm a happy Gigabyte owner. Good performance, no problems what-so-ever. Both are great brands, and of course I can't say anything bad about eVGA either, mainly because I've never owned any of their products XD

A recent example of EVGA awesomeness.

Thx u guys! Well since the performance is da same on both and that im gona LED mod HAF X in blue, ill probably go with the gigabyte, would look even cooler with a gigabyte motherboard! But the warranty and superclock factors really make me unconfortable in my choice :l

Both will are great choices, but if both are available I would go with Evga. The only reason for that is the step up program. Though you may never use it, you never know if you'll get that upgrade bug again soon, and at least you have 3 months to see if anything new comes out (say a 595 or something intresting). Aside from that, they're both great companies that both have great customer service.

Always go Evga With GPU's There staff is on there forum and very helpful.

I am also a long time member of the Evga forums...

But you will find me in the 400 series section bad mouthing the 500 series lol


The Onlything i dont like about Evga is how they do there Warrantys..
You cant transfer them to who you sell them to...
This is one Advantage Asus has over them..

And why i may get Asus GPUs when Kepler comes out in 2011.

Lol Hokies, could u possibly give me a couple of reasons of ur preference of the 400s over 500s? I am curious :0

Prob cause they're cheaper right now and when overclocked perform similarly. I would still take newer tech over old.

Besides they say the new 500s are quieter and are shown to run cooler. That alone is a plus in my book.
