Asus > EVGA - Page 3

post #21 of 67
E-Vga, to my knowledge, provides a top notch experience with both a solid product and pretty reasonable customer support. Having of owned there products in the past I cant really say I have had any issues, that said, I think the same of Asus, both very typical product lines.

THAT said, I have also understand that different sku's for different builds could be better/worse depending on what component is outsourced, notably where the manufacturer or reseller decided were their profit margin would be on. Cheap volt regs in lue of good ones... classic example.

Is micro$oft a crap company because xbox360's **** bricks when they get hot? Well... sorta a trick question, but based simply on that... nahh, its just a bad choice in the long run for a cost cut... gfx cards are not going to be any different.

Sometimes a good company can look like a bad one, when they (customer service) end up on the short end of a bean counting decision of a particular product... its unfortunate, but I am not sure it should reflect every product put out by said company. Just my 2cents.gif

By the by quibling about warranties on an OC site... is kinda... poke.gif

EVGA & ASUS are both solid brands, but everyone has some type of problem with some companys at times, either it be asus evga or xfx, non are perfect. But I know EVGA are best selling #1 brand in the US, so they must be doing something right.

ive had good and bad from both... All in all... never depend on a RMA product to be as good as a new one... If you cant afford to lose it, dont abuse it.

For the most part EVGA/ASUS are comparable out of the box.... although Ive never had an amazing clocking GPU from any manufacturer ever... guess im just unlucky...

EVGA has never sent me anything worse than I first had. Asus i have never had to RMA with for GPUs, but they have done right by me with a motherboard or two over the years...

Take your pick. I would imagine EVGA to be a faster RMA though due to the smaller company size. I have always felt Asus was "slow" with RMAs/BIOS releases/Updates/etc...

ASUS and EVGA are both excellent, and EVGA step up program is always a nice bonus. Can't go wrong either way, IMO. You can get a dud from any company, the question is what that company will do at that point...and both of these guys will replace your card quickly.

Basing RMA off youtube reviews is not the best way. IMO both EVGA and ASUS are top notch, although you will hear horror stories from both sides. If you look at my sig rig, you see a lot of ASUS solely because I really like how the RMA experiences were for me.

They were very fast with the 2 RMA I did with them. It was only at there RMA department for 2 days. The other days were in shipping

I usually go Asus for the fact that I don't usually keep my cards for longer than 3 years and resale value if I decide to sell is usually better with Asus due to the tranferable warranty. There's also some very nice newegg open box deals which are covered by warranty with Asus while Evga cards wouldn't be.

On this topic when it comes to video cards I really like the Palit products... thing is... there not really particularly thought of very highly, and there are reasons for this, but OC wise... they are screamers and love abuse. (My stuff came with wife beaters!)

I think it goes without saying, but Ill say it anyways... your mileage may vary.

I can't think of one other brand that will give you 100% (minus tax/s&h) of what you paid within 90 days towards a better/newer product.

Had the following
evga 7900gt
evga 8800gt
evga gtx470
evga 750i ftw
evga p55 sli

never once has anything been doa.
RMA'd the 7900gt 2 times, once early on, rma was quick n painless, i forget why i had to rma, overheating i believe, second time I rma'd it was cause I had a volt mod error, I recived a 9600 in return and gave it to a friend

8800's were flawless, one still running in my girls pc

750i ftw rma'd 3 times, all 3 were a breeze even thos I got sick of the board breaking after a few months so I just sold it. I think it had something to do with the vdroop pencil mod.

the 470 & p55 are running perfect now....


So in my experience, evga is a great company and have always treated me right...

Thanks for the insight, but I am not about to convert because of some dude on youtube flaming them..
