Default Another Video Card Poll

Which video card would you rather buy:

1) Leadtek Geforce PX7600GT TDH
Which, according to this review, can be overclocked to 640/800 from stock settings of 560/700.

2) XFX GeForce 7600GT XXX OC Edition
With stock settings at 590/800.

I would rather buy the 1'st Leadtek one, seems to perform faster.

Depends on what cooling I have, and if I actually want to(or am going to.) OC.

Here in Mexico we're poor and hence can't afford water, electricity and 7900GTs =)

leadtek would be the best choice, however if you decide to get the xfx. The xfx brand is known for its overheating and stuff so you would need to get a new fan or water cool.

I was joking on my last comment, you weren't mean don't worry .

I decided to go for the XFX 7600GT XXX Edition, which has factory overclock at 590/800. I found it US$50 cheaper than the Leadtek one, so I'm going for it. Also, I'd rather buy a card that comes overclocked, that way, if it overheats I can blame it on them and get a refund .

I would have picked the Leadtek card. Leadtek has been know to produce much better hardware than XFX (more reliable etc...). BTW they can't tell if you overclocked, just say you kept it at stock speeds and it burned out.
