Man those prices are high for you brits!

Zotac will be ok, the cards some with a standard 2 year warranty. Upon registration of the card it becomes a lifetime warranty.

In some cases, the clock and memory speeds on evga cards may be higher. But on the 295 they're all pretty standard, they arent any differences that I know of between the cards.

However, evga does offer excellent support. But for the price, I'd try to spring for at least the BFG. Something about the cheapness of the Zotac doesnt sit right with me.

The Zotac is cheaper because I found a coupon for it. Its normally 390, whereas the BFG is usually 420.
