Due to delays of getting a working 5970 back from asus, I purchase a evga 470. For me, I'm anti-asus.... selling the new 5970 when it arrives... going with evga... its another jump of faith
Honestly its the 5970 not Asus. Do a search that's probably the most RMAed card of the decade.

I had to resolder the connecting joints to bring the card back to life. Not to mention the 2 boards i owned that were shoddy quality and did not live past 2 years. Quality my a**. Both boards overclocked like crap too....
excuse me I got ****ed asus and have had 0 problems with evga. Why wouldn't I be a fanboy? Not to mention his post is highly inaccurate.

Why post to prove something he already made his mind up on without any experience of his own on the matter. What point is he trying to make?

For every bad review on EVGA you can find one eqaully as bad on ASUS because no one company has a perfect record. Both have great products to be honest. It's sometimes just preference on one's own opinion and nothing more. Also luck of the draw on defective parts.

I own an ASUS Sabertooth motherboard which is awesome. I own an EVGA GTX 580 video card that is equally awesome. Both make good mother boards and video cards. My opinion alone decided which I thought was best for me. I could have easily went all ASUS or all EVGA and been just as happy. For every unhappy person of either brand you can find another one with only praises. It's an opinion. Someone having to RMA a product to receive a refurbished product may have another RMA on their hands regardless of which company they used.

I had a choice between ASUS or EVGA video card and did my own homework. I found a lot of unhappy campers on both sides but found more that were happy on EVGA products so I went with EVGA. I also based it on EVGA being an exclusive Nvidia product maker like Sapphirre is to AMD.

On the motherboard EVGA had some nice ones but ASUS Sabertooth was a simple board made of high quality military grade components in SATA III, USB III, and Ceramix heat sink that appealed to me. So I went with it. MSI makes some great products as well. I absolutely love the Twin Frozr lines of non-reference cards they come out with.

I think the poster is trying to make himself feel better by making a statement that validates something to himself. Anyone reading this should make up their own minds and not take anything out of content to make an invalid point. Do your own homework based on actual facts like make, service, warranty and qaulity of your purchase.

Wow chill dude in my country it comes only 2.5 yrs warranty that's why I said go with whichever one offer better in your country.

It's not like I want to make them look bad and not everyone here lives in the same place as you....... But hey you learn a new thing today they don't offer the same lifetime warranty in every country.

replace an older dx 10 card with a newer dx11 card?... which he probably overclocked to insane amounts anyways (these company's are not stupid). Right, that would be the day maybe they should send him a whole system too?? Haha.

They are in it for a surplus...i know i am stating the obvious but still, they cant reach that if they gave everyone upgrades every three years regardless of the company. Honestly the build quality is pretty much the same, nvidia does all the engineering anyways. so many varations in brands, were lucky capatalism and supply and demand can work in our favour.

The same would be said for XFX. They're in dire need of lifetime warranties.

I say Asus>EVGA. Honestly people rarely keep GPUs that long, and I have never incurred an issue with an Asus GPU. The mobo that I sent in were always returned brand spanking new in box with the exception of one old model. Asus does not hassle you for PoPs either, which I think is completely stupid for any product costing you as much as EVGA charges just for their brand. Their like the PC version of Apple to me.

I would agree with you fully if (EVGA) backed their product all the way. Its sad that we as enthusiasts have to ask a person selling something eVGA brand every time "has it been registered yet?/will you help with RMAs?/is it still registered?
