EVGA hands down. Lifetime warranty, ability to OC, ability to add aftermarket HSF. But what do I know I'm "biosed"

EVGA is better imo based on their support and warranty..
They'd be perfect if they had ati cards.. =/

Typically I like Evga. I do appreciate the support Asus has given our folding team lately though.

Perhaps if Asus can step up their RMA and support then they could de-throne Evga one day in my books.

I have had the opportunity to try the EVGA RMA and it was excellent.

EVGA is king when it comes to video cards. If only ATI had better manufacturers. XFX isn't too bad either with their double lifetime warranty. IMO Asus is one of the worst JMO.

I've never owned a single ASUS product that didn't have some strange quirk to it, or just die before I think it should have. Well TBH the only parts that have died on me besides a couple asus mobo's are a cd-rom that cought on fire and a hard drive I dropped of a desk. I keep saying "that's it! I'm not buying any more asus!" then after a couple years when everybody is talking about some new board they have I think it's been long enough and everything is different now anyway... I have two asus mobo's now and after these are gone I'm going on my few year ban.

So I find it impossible to support anything Asus, and I voted EVGA. The one and only product I've gotten from them is working lovely (a GTX 280).
