people told me theyre not very reliable they break easy and theyre just good in general, evga is higher quality. if your thinking about the black and uv green xfx dont let the cool colors fool ya i guess.

lots of people say that, but its more paranoia than actuall badness. I have a XFX card, no problems at all.

the paranoia thing is what i think too, but if as many people had bac luck with theirs as they claim, id rather not chance 300$ like that. its all up to you, if your not going to overclock it will probly be fine.

Check out this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16814130256. Its slightly faster than the one you picked out, has a copper heatsink, and its cheaper. Like what was previously stated, i wouldnt want to risk $300 by buying a company some people are having problems with. In the end its all your decision.

They arent made by the same manufacturer, the chipset is the same but the card itself is made by its respective companies. Some companies build their cards with a greater quality components and thus the prices and specs can be different.
