Is there a difference between the evga and the xfx?

I've seen a lot of recommendations for the evga line of cards that's why I went for them.

Hmm i can only say that I've never had anything good come out of any compaq merchandice ive ever had, Samsung has some really good and fairly priced LCD's, their CRT's are probably even better priced.

My dad has the Compaq FS7600 and it's performed flawlessly for him and the speakers that come with it aren't bad either.

I've already bought the OCZ Value. I can't really go above $700. Which I've already done, but just barely.
