GTX 580 reference card: does brand matter? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I have 3 x Zotac cards, never needed to research their RMA process. They work perfectly for me. Zotac biggest market is Europe, so not sure about their presences where your located.

Zotac is the cheapest one, ASUS I can get locally.

Is there any difference in components used for different brands of reference cards?

P.S. I'm going to use it with EK-FC580 GTX+ block.
I would go a bit different way,I would pick a msi card,
evga,asus are good too,
although zotac is not the best....u wont hear many complains from zotac gpu users

MSI is good, but I have EVGA. I hate going by brand though, I like EVGA, but if MSI will give me a better bang I'll use them <_<.

Just note that asus, usually will void the warrenty when you even think about removing the heat-sink.
But these are good cards. I got 4 of them.

After you register the Zotac card, you get a lifetime warranty (for US & Canada only).
