Re: Invidia or Asus graphics card?
the only main difference in the manufacturer's other than price is the warranty. Zotac I know has lifetime warranties on all graphics products. EVGA limits their lower level graphic products warranty I think to 2 or 3 years whereas their high end cards are lifetime. PNY I know is lifetime warranty. Lifetime warranty means as long as you own the card and are living, they will fix or replace the defective card for you. The other companies are ususally 2-3 years warranty. I don't know nvidia's warranty though. here is the fastest of the gtx 460's. EVGA's superclocked 460 external exhaust. This one comes with a lifetime warranty upon online registration and can be ordered directly from evga itself. It's $189, maybe a little higher but it's the best bang for the buck. just compare it's specs to ragejg's table. His table is the reference or what you should clock your card at according to nviidia. some companies push more out the card in their manufacturing but maintain the same quality. EVGA direct sales also have the rebate and offer free US shipping.
