    My first EVGA card. Have it for about 9 months now. No complains, quiet, doesn't get too hot (as long as I rely on rivatuner for a 92% fan setting). Great performance.

    2X BFG 8800 GTS 640mb's, both accepted the OC2 bios flashes and have ran silent and cool ever since. Got them both at the price of the 320mb models too.

    Despite not liking Nvidia :)


    I would get EVGA if I had to get anything...so I voted for EVGA.

    Their customer support, and warranty and build quality are superb.

    Didn't see that one coming. :lol:

    I primarily sell BFG and Leadtek. I usually sell BFG first for 2 reasons: 1) they are usually cheaper, and 2) Foxconn makes their boards, and as such their quality is usually top notch. With Leadtek it's the latter reason. Foxconn does a hell of a job on their boards, and it shows. Only problem is they are usually the most expensive, right up there with Asus, but at 2x Asus' quality.

    I have to say, though, that I like eVGAs boards too, and I would sell more if I could readily get them.

    I chose the XFX 8800 Ultra for the double lifetime warranty. If you sell the card the person the original purchaser sells to gets a lifetime warranty as well on the card.

    I already RMA'd the card once and although it took some time to replace it they readily admitted the card was at fault and sent me a new Full retail card with a free copy of Lost Planet: Extreme condition and a PC toolkit. They also shipped it international priority, it was sent on a Friday evening and arrived Monday afternoon.

    I have XFX but less then happy with their tech support. Took 5 days just to get an RMA from them with a simple report of artifacts then no boot on video. 2 weeks now i have to wait to have a new or repaired card sent back to me. Honestly i loved Asus and ATI advanced RMA systems and miss that. Will not buy again as being down for 3 weeks for a video card that is 100% defective is BS.

    I agree the RMA was rediculously slow. I think they have problems finding/binning chips for their Ultra. Not sure what card you had? The new card I received is an awesome overclocker though!

    mine is an older 7900 GT. But still think that any company without an advaned RMA on a piece like this for the price is not worth the purchase any more.

    I currently have a XFX 8800 GTX and it has treated me well so far, I also have had several Leadteks which also have been very reliable.
