Default Gigabyte vs. Asus 4850

Is there any real differences or is it personal preference?

Oh sorry, i meant both of them as 4850's. My local shop which has awesome prices just sold out of the asus ones and i was wondering whether it was worth waiting for them to get a new load of asus ones in or whether i should just buy a gigabyte one...

They shouldn't differ too much hardware wise because the chip sets are made by nVidia, if you don't plan overclocking I would choose the cheaper one since both should have good enough coolers on them to run stock. Warranty is also an issue if you like buying peace of mind ;p

Same thing, mainly the deciding factors amongst here in the forum are: if they have a decent cooler, price and warranty
