If you're not going SLI and have 3 open slots:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814187123&cm_re=sparkle_460-_-14-187-123-_-Product

Lifetime warranty on the Calibre too. Also quieter and cooler. It's the extra pci slot space that's the catch. smile.gif

I thought eVGA was lifetime, that card says 2 years.

1 GB > 768MB It may be slightly stock OCed, but nothing that would be difficult to obtain.

i think it was because the 768mb was a superclocked edition. I'd still go with the one in my link since it is cheapest
