My point of telling you all this... I've gotten basically the same hardware from EVERY manufacturer. Reference pcb with reference cooling... with only slightly higher than reference clocks... nothing I couldn't have done on my own anyway.

Go with whatever has a better;

BUNDLE
CUSTOMER SERVICE

That's really all I can say... Step-Up is nice but no one I know who's had an eVGA has been able to take advantage of it.

As far as customer service... I can't say much about any of the brands i've owned... all cards have been flawless and I never had any issues. In fact the 260, 6800 gt, and 7800 gtx are still being used by my roomate, sister, and a friend... that's going on 4-5 years on the 6800 GT... to really ever have to deal with custom service you'd have to be really unlucky.





TLDR version... go with whichever has a cooler looking sticker
Actually you would be suprised to know that the some cards, including the GTX 260's vary from vendor to vendor. For example, most vendors use a 4 phase power solution on GTX 260, EVGA uses 6.
