Default which gtx?

msi http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127182

xfx http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150100

reason i've made it between these two is because i can get either of them shipped free......

if you'd still say another card then say so!

i don't see why not getting the xfx. better speeds that come close to the bfg oc edition's 460/1300.. thoughts? the only reason i see not to get it is because i've seen people talking badly about xfx....

evga seems to be the number one most recommended gc by people.. i can't get free shipping on this card.. but would you recommend it over the others? is it true that evga's warranty is so good that they'll replace a card damaged by oc'ing?

DO NOT GET THE XFX.

Get the EVGA but MSI is fine if you really must save the money on shipping.

i've never done business with them..would you recommend them? also, are they reliable enough to assume i'd get the card by the end of this week in time for christmas?

I've bought many items from Zipzoomfly.com

2 day free shipping usually gets it in my hands in 4 to 5 days.

509 for 385? how does that work?
