Evga, I've always dealt with them and never had a faulty product. Plus they have the step-up program.

eVGA because removing the stock heatsink and replacing it with a better cooling option does NOT void the warranty.

</div>I voted for eVga because I have liked every card I bought from them. Aside from the heatsinks and warranties, I don't think there's much difference. BFG and eVga are both great names.

I vote eVga as well, I took off the heatsink from my 7800GS and they still RMA'd it, and the step-up is nice. BFG is good with the lifetime warranty though.

well why not, i have had 3 different msi cards (1 of them being my gforce4 ti 4200 8x) that all lasted the 4200 is still in a rig and usually the msi oc very well, the evga are better in my mind then the bfgbecasue the one that i had performed very well and oced outstandingly and didnt break, ive had 2 bfg's and both had the worst heatsincs ive ever scene ona vid card and the 5200 that i had didnt perform worth .. and the 7900 i go t from them barely had enough vgpu to power its mild oc from the factory <br />
<br />
<br />
just my opinion though

eVGA, kick-ass warranty that allows overclocking and replacing the stock heatsink, the 90-day step up program is hella useful, they make great cards, and they usually handle RMAs and questions quickly and effectively. Just make sure Gene doesn't handle your RMA. He didn't return phone calls, and was on the borderline of lying to me about my 7900GT RMA. Another guy got everything straightened out, though.

Plus they're just the best, and usually overclock he highest. All the graphics cards I've ever bought personally, or recommended to a friend have been EVGA. They're the best nVidia solution around.

eVGA also has lifetime warrenty if you register your product on their website <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
I have been using XFX for some time and its been a great company. However, I choose eVGA in this poll instead of "other" because I plan on geting eVGA stuff later on due to their step-up and great support <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

No, they put what you paid for your card towards a new card. Example:<br>
I bought my 7900GT KO for $270 a couple months ago. The 7900GTO is $300 on eVGA's site. I could send eVGA my 7900GT KO, along with $30, and they would send me a shiny new 7900GTO.

eVGA ftw have had no problems with their CS, at all. RMA are fast and easy. They even have a 24/7 help support. I called at 12 30 the other night, and they helped me just the same as during the day. And they are very kind and courteous.

eVGA is the best. Lifetime warranty that protects custom cooling and overclocking, the Step-Up program, and really good customer service. It's just an awesome company, period.

Nothing but EVGA for me. Lifetime warranty, which even covers overclocking and removing the heatsink. The step up program is nice. And they have about the best customer service.
