Palit vs. EVGA
 
Between the Palit GeForce GTX 460 Sonic Platinium (1024MB GDDR5) and the EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked 1024MB EE, which one should I pick? Both are the same price, if I am not mistaken.

Everyone who is thinking of getting a Palit or Gainward should go to that link, apparently the end consumer Gainward/Palit GTX 460's dont have VRM Heatsinks, while the reviewer units did. This results in crazy high temps on parts of the board and the fan cranking up high and loud.

Also, it's worth spending the extra $10 to get the lifetime warranty on evga cards.

I have a Palit 460 (running at default clocks, 1400MHz shaders 700MHz memory). it doesn't have the VRM heatsink and the main GPU heatsink appears to be a cheaper material than the review samples. idle: 34C Furmark: 82c. that Furmark temperature does seem to be higher than normal, so I wouldn't trust it at 800MHz!

Your link takes me to the EVGA main forum page. You didn't paste the link correctly/fully.

EVGA for support/warranty reasons.

I do not know anything about Palit ,never had a card from them ,but I do know EVGA has just about the best customer service and support in the video card business.I would certainally suggest EVGA.

EVGA

Incidentally, why am I finding all the same threads here as I am on Rage3D?

EVGA has always been the best OEM partner for Nvidia. I've never had a bad experience with them.

Is there a problem with that? Just trying to get as many opinions as I can.
