I don't get it! Why would anyone buy that EVGA when they can get the BFG or MSI or any other models (with the obvious 216 cores) for the same or less the cost?

Well there is also the quality of the customer service, warranty etc to consider.

The card was one of the cheapest cards out at the time (november 2008), and it came with Farcry 2.

Still...I'd got with MSI or BFG anyday as long as it'll give me better hardware for the same price.

That makes me wonder if the EVGA card just has some of the shaders deactivated. Obviously not yours, but possibly the others are.

Anywhoo that orange is killer! I see why ppl are falling for it.
