Hi all. I just RMa my bad ZOTAC GTX 580. He was artifacting in 3dmark 11 on extreme details ( very rare ) and freezing with black flickering screen. So shop give my money back. And now i want buy again GTX 580. I got cash only for PNY GTX 580. Is this good brand? Or collect money to better brand like EVGA? I was looking for Asus EnGtx580 Direct Cu II but on some forums i have read that this card can be unstable on default voltages, clocks or bios. Something like that. I Just want good card without changing anything.
And i dont want problems like in Zotac i was have. Please help. Add extra dollars to EVGA GTX 580 or buy PNY GTX 580 ? Please help guys

I like EVGA better because its a good brand and most of their graphic card have a lifetime warranty, but some have 3 year warranty. If you buy a EVGA graphic card with a lifetime warranty, make sure to register it within 30 days to get your lifetime warranty. I think the MSI and ASUS GTX 580 are better than EVGA, PNY, and ZOTAC though, but they cost more, so they may be out of your price range. The MSI GTX 580 is the best one because it has good cooling and only take up 2 slots while the ASUS takes up 3 slots.

PNY is a good brand, I personally wouldn't spend extra money to get something over them

PNY will work fine but their warranty service isn't that great. EVGA definitely has good customer service, they even helped me with a problem on a Saturday.

EVGA does not have lifetime warranty in Europe. I don't know where the OP is located.

They don't? EVGA also has the "Step-Up" program, dont know if PNY has anything like that though .. I ordered a new EVGA GTX 580 today because i wanted to upgrade to SLi, and ordered the EVGA because of their "lifetime warranty" ..

EDIT: As far as i can see the GTX 580 got 10 years limited warranty in Europe.

EVGA has very good warranty and customer service. They also cover warranty on GPUs that have aftermarket water blocks on them

Does the warranty still cover overclocking? There was a guy talking about it somewhere on a forum ..
