There are so many of them and it's hard to chose.

So lets cast our vote and share our experiences. Also if you have used their customer service please leave your feedback so others would know.

Let's start voting biggrin.gif

[my vote]

Gigbayte: I did use their customer service and It was brilliant. They got a UK based customer service office, my RMA went smooth without any issues at all.

From personal experience MSI. I got an MSI 6950 unlocked and overclocked no sweat. My friend got the reference MSI 7970 and it overclocks like a dream as well. Their warranty is also amazing! (Although I haven't had to deal with it on paper it seems really good!) thumb.gif

I will admit that they might not be the best for you if you are a wholeseller or retailer but that is such a small concern to many (even me who has sold a crap ton of their products recently and has a giant list full of college kids, faculty members, and military members who are awaiting new EVGA products) but that is to be expected with an awesome company like EVGA.
I have several specific instances in mind regarding why EVGA is the best (at least for me) out of the bunch, but I will just sum it up by saying that they are as American as it gets these days, staffed by actual gamers and folders, and are always there on the forums to help. Always. Never will they play the blame game. Oh yeah did I mention FULLY TRANSFERABLE SUPER AWESOME HASSLE FREE WARRANTIES??
There are a ton of haters out there for some reason. Not really sure why, but if you like the BEST stuff, the BEST parts, the BEST customer service, the BEST Tech Support, and the BEST community support (evga forum).. then EVGA is for you.
If you like AMD, are a cheapskate, like hassles and microstutters, and driver issues, and high failure rate parts.. then most likely they are not for you. thumb.gif

Wow what you say does seem good and when i looked at NewEgg EVGA is has 6 best rated cards on NewEgg also top 3 won the customer choice awards. It seems that I leaving towards EVGA for my GTX 680 biggrin.gif

EVGA of course, by a LOOONG shot.

Their new warranty changes are enough reason to go with them.
