Both are $280 at Newegg. If the two cards were identical I would go for Gainward but the Albatron is the same price and has a custom copper cooler.

According to their websites, Albatron has 3 years of warranty and Gainward only 1. Although you might not need more than a few months ;) Sorry, I couldn't resist. Plus Albatron's card comes with Duke Nukem, a game surely to push the limits of this card :/ What else could you ask for?

That settles it. Albatron it is!

Thanks for the input.

That albatron cooler looks prety decent.
I'd get the albatron for sure.

I've already ordered. Since Best Buy charges me tax the difference would be slim.
