Default Which Geforce 7800GTX 512?

I read many reviews and as of now the Geforce 7800GTX 512mb is the king of the hill. Now: What manufacturer that makes this card is the best?

Msi:

BFG:

XFX:

eVGA:

Which one???
They all cost bacically the same, and come with games etc. I was thinking XFX, but then again I heard bad things about XFX...

If you were planning on buying it, i'd have to say eVGA not only because of their track record for good cards, but it's $50 less then the others and it comes with a $50 game. A really good one too.

The eVGA 7800GTX is going to have an MSRP of $1072, it has water cooling out of the box with clockspeeds of 600/1800 (nothing you can't achieve on stock cooling of the other cards). It was posted on XtremeSystems.org. Go with BFG, it is the same price as all the other ones ($749), and has the fastest clock speeds (580/1750), and you can EASILY overclock that to 600/1800.

I'm with the general opinion. eVGA or BFG.


Never anything xfx, and only mobos from msi.

I think 003 means the eVGA 7800GTX 512 BlackPearl... That is the one with the water cooling, but you will also need to have a whole water cooling setup since it is only the gpu waterblock and card.
