sapphire vs asus vs gigabyte vs msi vs xfx for 6xxx - Page 2

post #11 of 29
I think Gigabyte is right in between. Average warranty, same exact card, and your card comes from a mobo manufacturer.

Sapphire, Asus, or MSI in my opinion.

I'd be inclined to go with Asus though.

Stay away from XFX and Gigabyte. Overall horrendous customer service (Gigabyte has never replied to any emails regarding warranty/RMA without it looking like it was a chopped up google translate from Korean to English).

So far I have only had an XFX 6950 which I didnt like. I had to return it and my only other choices at Fry's was Diamond or MSI so I got an MSI 6970 for $322 bucks and their is a $25 rebate on it which is nice. I couldnt just return it since the 6950 was already installed. My next 6970 will be a Sapphire though. The MSI does come with nice software, and a free $20 version of 3DMark11.

Atleast with MSI I can call a place here in Cali, and talk to someone who sort of speaks english. XFX tech service was shady and pushy. No way I will go back to them.

Stay away from XFX unless you enjoy crappy parts, like to play the run around with customer service, or like to be denied an RMA/Warranty due to factory defects.

I'd go with MSI or ASUS.

How are they still in business with a rep like this? I guess it is from morons like me that dont know what to buy for their first build, but I am atleast picky enough and willing to look into things more than most so that is why I got rid of it.

They have a double lifetime warranty. I guess they're OK when things don't go wrong.

What does double lifetime warranty give compared to lifetime warranty?

It means that if you die and come back your card is still covered.

Lol.

Actually I think it means that you, the first owner are covered by a lifetime warranty and if you happen to sell or give your card away the second owner is covered by a lifetime warranty as well....?

MSI is the best amongst all in my opinion,
