Go with the EVGA if you're going 7950GT...EVGA owns all others, and it has the better heatsink.

I don't know how the XFX's passive heatpipe-sink will work, but I can almost garauntee that it won't be as good as the EVGA.

the third (eVGA) 7950GT or an eVGA 7900GTX. Go SLi if you really want (though I think it is a big waste of money). Add some ramsinks or an aftermarket cooler. The 7950GT is cheaper and better for overclocking.

I'll buy your 7600gs for $40 since it's crap

dont jump the gun charlie EVGA is very nice so is xfx you will have to do a little reasearch about passive heatpipe before downing it

I know, I own an XFX 7800GT and I love it. However, it is typical of XFX's to be so-so overclocker's because they are supposedly "factory oc'd" and don't offer a whole lot more than they are already clocked to. Also, the passive heatsink won't work for crap unless you have a decent amount of air moving across it. If you have good case airflow, then it will do you fine, but not so much for oc'ing it.

NOW, if you strapped an 80mm fan to the card...haha...then maybe it would run very cool. But other then that, the EVGA is better.

I have the evga one and I have been extremely happy with it. I can play all games at max and I have not overclocked it yet.

Just an FYI, having a nvidia chipset does not limit you to only using nvidia cards, you can also use ATI, though you wont be able to utilize crossfire without a new board.
