Default Which Geforce 8800 GTX?

So I've been looking at a lot of em on newegg and so far this seems the best deal:

Newegg.com - EVGA 768-P2-N831-AR GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail

I had my heart set on the superclocked EVGA version, but is the +70 dollars really worth it? What does everything think of EVGA in general? I read reviews and they dont seem bad, does BFG offer anything better I should know about? Thanks again

EVGA IMO, is one of the best companies for graphic cards. Definitely in the top 2, for nvidia cards.

That is the best deal 8800GTX. You don't need the superclocked, because you can just overclock a stock to those speeds.

yeah they are all basically the same...so it really just comes down to which company you prefer to deal with.. EVGA is quite good as they have a good RMA service and also offer the step-up program. I've had an EVGA 7800GT and EVGA 7900GT KO superclocked and haven't been happier

EVGA and XFX are the two best IMO but EVGA is usually cheaper so I got for them.
