Nvidia good brands - Page 4

post #31 of 42
Definitely get a single card, 570 or 580. All brands are fine for me if the card is a reference model, if not, it depends a lot of what kind of custom stuff it has.

In terms of warranty and stuff I like EVGA the best.

Asus and MSI are my second favorites. I picked an MSI GTX570 cause I could not get the EVGA product fast enough cause they focus mostly on US.

As for which card depends on what you want to play and how much you want to spend. Quad SLI 580s is cheap for some people, others that is a months paycheck.

I would get the 570 over the sli 460s. It is almost always better to go with a higher powered single card.
I've personally always liked ASUS and tend to use their stuff pretty exclusively, even though I know there's a bit of a hate-on for "ASUCKS" in some OC communities. They're not necessarily the best-performing or best-featured; but they're the most reliable hardware I've used.

I thought about going with the 580; but ended up going with dual SLI 460s, since I'm on a very limited budget, and found an excellent deal (got both 460s for a little over half the cost of a single 580).

For reference cards I usually get evga & haven't had issues, step up can be nice when new cards come out soon after purchase. For non reference cards MSI is great, usually superior air cooling solutions & lightning editions are awesome.

Members,

Don't waste your time with this guys question. "somebodysb2".
Total troll. He asked the same question about "ATI brands".

His responses to advice from knowledgeable OCN members is rude and non appreciative.
These threads start cyber arguements among many different brands and their owners.

Do they not have "Google" in Hong Kong where OP supposely lives???

I have an ASUS ROG MOBO so I know they are great. :3 Great customer service for me imo. They solved all my problems and were willing to do anything to help. But same experience with EVGA. So eh, it's a wash.

I asked the same questions when I was new.. anyone who knows anything about me knows I posted TONS of threads asking MILLIONS of questions. ATI brands, Nvidia brands, 1366 boards, 1556 boards, etc. Also the title of a troll is so freaking worthless.

Top2 nvidia card for brand is MSI/EVGA

Top2 AMD Card is Sapphire and HIS(?)






I recommend EVGA, but since you have Asus motherboard, Asus Graphic card works great as well... same brand hardware tend to work better.. such as like samsung tv know your samsung bluray is turned on and the tv automatically switched it for you.. Asus had those EPU Power saving software thing, and those power saving works only on Asus Graphic card.




Also Go for 570, 580 is overly expenive and Kepler which is only like less then 6-9months away and is 2.5 time faster, if you get 580 for $500 you'll feel regret later when Kepler is out, 570 is only <$350 so not so bad and is enough to power all latest game at =>30FPS on 1080 resolution

true.... same for me....

when i got on here in 2006... i didn't work in a computer shop...

and i only knew a bit about tweaking...

and i asked a bucket load of questions

Over the Last 4 n a half years....

i have gone from NOOB to Pro NOOB... lol

and since when does google say how good a brand of card is????

Forums Like OCN and the best place to get real advice from people experience on what is good or not...

mainly because they have actually dealt with the product themselves for more then just a couple of weeks of testing....

I also know when i first started working at the local computer shop...

i asked alot of question on good brands for alot of different parts...

mainly because i wanted to supply the small number of customers that i get here in dungog... with quality components so they will come back time and time again....
