I like xfx and evga, i have mainly always had xfx cards though only ever had 1 go faulty and it had a decent warranty so was sent back for a new one biggrin.gif. Ive had a couple of evga cards also good. Ive got a zotac atm which seems ok but it was cheaper compared with the other brands.

I believe Sapphire and Zotac are both part of the same parents company, so if you could stock one, i'm sure you could get the other. As people have said, EVGA offer some really nice cards as well smile.gif

Might also want to have a gander at KFA2 cards. They are a new premium offshoot of an existing company (I forget who).

Stop feeding the troll and just report the kid people, this isn't rocket science.

On Topic: Some brands to consider could be Asus, MSI, Zotac, Palit, KFA2 [Galaxy in the States], EVGA, Sapphire, VisionTek

Those are the brands that come to mind.. XFX seems to be pretty sketchy as far as RMA's go so I'm still not a fan of them :\

Good luck with the company, everything looks pretty darn good! smile.gif

Personally, i'm for:

ASUS

Sapphire

HIS

In that order, top being best.

It's always good to see new PC shops start up, good luck with the site/business, hope it does well.

This with EVGA thrown in the top 2 with Asus imo. I'd prefer an HIS card over sapphire but they're both equally great imo, bought one graphics card from both just last year (5850/5770). XFX is hit or miss with their cards, the warranty is great to have and they're normally good for it but I would only buy one used for the right price.

Also, like Thingamajig said, good luck with the site biggrin.gif.

Hi Guys

Thanks guys ( Most of you anyway ) LOL

We have been in business for about 7 years, but have just revamnped site etc and just wanted to get a idrea from this community on what they felt is good at present and why, so we could reflect that.

YES we are UK based, but then so are a helluva lot of ppl on here.

We chose this forum to become a part of ( Officially as a Vendor Rep ) because it seemed like after alot of research it was a great friendly place, ( and i have to say 99% of you have been ) and we wanted to interact more with the type of community which buys from us, as most of the guys working here, in their spare time are just like you, building rigs etc , going to forums.

anyway many thanks for your comments, its much appreciated

Also check out our other thread, UK members can get 5% discount.

thanks again

regards

Cheers, I shall remember you for the future. I will be looking at a new card when BF3 is nearing release. What part of the country are you based in? Also, did you have an eBay store?

Also, don't worry about the unhelpful guys at the start, admins will give them their comeuppance!
