EVGA vs MSI GTX 460

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've gone with EVGA video cards for as long as I can remember. However, I'm seeing awesome reviews on MSI's version of the 460.

EVGA - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130568

MSI - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127534

I'm not really looking for specs on the card: I'm looking for a consumers point of view. If anyone has any of these card, or you want to place your input, please let me know what you think

Go with the MSI there quality and customer service is far better then EVGA at current time. I have heard EVGA has really gone down hill and have not heard any problems with current MSI product. Next board/GPU I purchased will be MSI they use military spec components on most of there hardware as EVGA does not.

Is it easier to overclock as well or are they about the same?

If you plan on water cooling, go with the evga model. If you plan to leave it stock on air, then go with the msi card.

you do realize the whole military spec components thing is just a gimmick. pretty sure most of the msi boards that were catching fire were touted as having the military specs components. not saying anything bad about msi, just a gimmick is a gimmick.

Both companies have stated they will honor your warranty as there isn't physical damage done to the board, so taking off the cooler etc is all fair game. However the differences are:

1. MSI does warranty by serial number and therefore doesn't require you to register it. Helps with selling it.

2. EVGA generally has lifetime warranty only if you are the original owner of the card and only if you registered the card within X days of ownership.
