Default Re: GTX 480- price aside, which brand would you choose?

I would just find the cheapest one since they are all made about the same ,sure some of them don't have lifetime warranty but you useally pay for it .and if it just has a three year warranty ,if you are like me you want keep a card that long any way .I have found GIgabytes GTX 470 for $286 and MSI for $299 with free shipping.If they are really no louder then a GTX 280 then it is not that bad because I ran mine at 75% and I had three of them and it was not over bearing.But I do agree EVGA has the best tech support out there.
