Default Re: BFG vs. EVGA

I have a BFG 285 GTX right now. It's a good card, but if I had it to do all over again, I would go with EVGA. No particular reason, I just feel like that's the better card.

All cards are made by the same manufacturer right? Then shipped of to company's(evga, xfx, bfg, asus)so they can put there sticker on, Adjust over-clocks, Add warranty & coolers, T-shirts!

Well that's what ive always been lead to believe from reading these forums!

Ive always choose evga never the less.

That's great to know. Thanks for clearing that up jAkUp... unfortunately it's something that they don't seem to advertise too well... or atleast if they do it's not mentioned in most reviews / articles.... does the GTX 285 feature similar power circuitry advancements over competitors?

I usually buy things based on small differences like that. Since the Pentium 4 days I've always shopped for motherboards with more phases in their power solutions (usually Gigabyte / Abit *cry* )... that would definetly sway my video card decision based on what you've told me.



On a slightly un-related note.... does anyone have any first-hand experience with Gainward...? They don't deal in the US since the 5xxx nvidia days but I always wanted to try their cards out... non-refence cooling / pcb always seemed like it would provide some decent benefits.


also...

I loved my hand-me-down BFG shirt... I don't think I'd ever buy a card based on that though

That is sort of true. Usually, reference cards are made by Nvidia, and shipped to each partner. But aside from the reference cards, anything after that is designed in house (based on the reference card) and built by a PCB company. I could be wrong, but I believe that is how it works...

Well life got in the way and my cat put its claws right through the screen of my touch screen phone

So I had to go get a new phone so waiting for a few more weeks I guess

BTW the Samsung Rogue is outstanding! The stupid data plan you have to get with it is not.

I saw evga's step-up getting a bad rap but I don't really know why... I had a 7800gt and then the 7900gt came out and I was able to step-up without paying much at all. Went smoothly for me, no complaints about evga

Are you the same jAKUp that said how awesome the 2GPU on one board was ("Jitter? What's jitter?") and then later said of a newer card, "And this one doesn't have the jitter problems!" Perhaps the same jAKUp who works for eVGA who released the single worst 680i motherboard that they quickly replaced with a newer revision when the older one had memory controller and hard drive southbridge?

I hope eVGA's got better quality than it did a couple years ago. Personally, I recommend BFG if you can get the same price and upgrade potential.
