i think you should go w/ msi

its 220 right now, its overclocked to 670 (9800gtx speeds) and it comes w/ the witcher for free... sounds like a deal to me

It's actually $199 after MIR. It was a steal, but I didn't like how it wasn't lifetime warranty, so I just stuck with the Evga for $50 more. Plus, the EVGA is more popular and OC's better or so I heard. I think better fan aswell? Don't know, but I don't want to OC or have problems and not have warranty, would be risky.

XFX

EVGA has a single lifetime warranty and are picky about RMAs.
XFX can transfer warranty and will RMA about anything.
