My last 4 NV cards were EVGA, you just can't beat their Customer Service

For GPUs, EVGA only. I won't buy anyone else.

As for motherboards, I get the best reviewed one in my price range, regardless of vendor. EVGA ticked me off with a bait and switch they pulled with one of their motherboards. It almost seems like a different company is running their mobo side.

I agree EVGA is about the best with it's customer support ,but I have two BFG gtx 280 this time and I have had no problems with thier customer support so I can"t complain about BFG,but EVGA does have great support.

BFG is a pretty decent brand.

XFX on the other hand... personally I think it takes some real luck to stick with that brand and not eventually end up dealing with major problems with both the product and their customer service

Even though here in New Zealand their step up offer doesn't apply I would still say EVGA. My 8800GTX is still powering away after all this time with no issues whatsoever.

I decided to get EVGA. Very impressive feedback on their brand, hopefully theirs aren't as problematic as some BFG cards were I've had in the past.
