Which brand do you prefer?
I always have used BFG's since theirs are factory-overclocked and they offer lifetime warranties. Once my 6800 card a few years back went defective, so they sent me a replacement. So even though I cannot say I never had a problem w/ their products, I did not dislike them.

But I've read some disturbing things about BFG cards in this forum and I'm beginning to reconsider the brand I should get since I plan to get a pair of GTX 295 or 285 next year.

So which brand is your favourite and why? People say EVGA's support and services are fantastic, but never having used their products, I have no clue. I know BFG ain't that bad either. I see other brands also such as XFX, ASUS, GALAXY, MSI, PNY, ZOTAC, FOXCONN, GIGABYTE, PALIT.

I definitely would appreciate what people think about this. Thanks a lot!

EVGA is very hard to go wrong with.

Their warranty is second to none. You can even pay a very nominal fee when you register your card and they'll cross ship if anything ever goes wrong in the future.

And their step up program is awesome. I just bought a 280gtx, hopefully nvidia releases in january and I'll be able to step up.

I've rma'd motherboards to them after a bad flash, very painless and relatively fast.

They release motherboard bios frequently, both in beta and final.

They have an active tech forum, and /gasp!, they even post their occasionaly.

Then there is Jakup, a forum member here, so in a small manner they have a presence here too. Of the nvidia vendors, I feel they are the best.

fyi, they also have o.c. cards. I'm running a 280gtx SSC.

I'll stay loyal to them as long as they stay the great company they seem to be.

Evga. Great support. I love their new X58 mobo too. Rocking GTX 260 Tri-SLi in it.

eVGA for sure. Every single card I've owned since replacing my 5900 all those years ago has been an evga card.

That is some pretty overwhelming domination by EVGA. I guess I don't have a choice then lol....

What a surprise there! :p

I prefer MSI but only because i purchased so many cards under that brand and never had a problem with them.

EVGA all the way!

I used to like MSI when they had their own kinds of heatsinks. Not sure if they still do that?

I'm going to also go with EVGA. Can't seem to beat them really. I've never had to deal with their tech support *knocks on wood* but I've heard tons of great things about them.
