Which Graphics Card Brand and Why? - Page 6

post #51 of 64
Asus because they make rock solid computer hardware. Their my first choise for all components

MSI because the video cards rock. Afterburner is a great tool and their prices a re reasonable

And Powercolor because their cards run 5-10% lower than all the other manufacturers but still make quality products

EVGA. All cards minus my one ATI have been EVGA. I like the warranty and quality.

Sapphire,MSI,or EVGA
Sapphire because they're solid an overclockable.MSI is good for videocards,too
EVGA has great warranty and is overclockable

Stay away from:XFX...They are the "Dell" of videocards

and Asus:They limit the OCing ability and the PCBs are very thin

XFX is my Flavor of choice and will be for the foreseeable future; Once ATI was taken over by AMD and stopped selling ATI Branded cards. I searched around for the better of them all out there and found that XFX will not push anyone away for a warranty issue if the stock cooler was removed for say a better air solution or if water cooling was chosen. Provided that there is no damage to the card or the stock cooler and the GPU itself was not damaged and that includes a little scratch and as long as you did not Overclock the card beyond the limit so as to cook it biggrin.gif

XFX for me. Just about everyone I know that builds/games uses XFX and all of them swore by XFX when I was getting started with my first build. After dealing with there customer support I have first hand experience how easy they are to deal with.
