I think they're pretty similarly priced, if your not planning on stepping up (and who would with 2 of those beauties) then XFX looks to be your best bet.

United States.

Also on newegg and other sites, it seems like the XFX video cards do not come with the S video to componite cables or DVI to VGA connectors. Is this true or do they just not include a picture of it?

They have the XFX but the eVGA's are all sold out.

If eVGA sells the 8800GT with a speed of 600MHZ, and one has a speed of 750MHz doesnt that mean the card with the speed of 600MHz can easily go to 750MHz?

So pretty much poeple who do not want to overclock buy the more expensive stuff lol.

I think I might go with eVGA because I would rather have quake wars than company of heroes (hate RTS)

Ya thats pretty accurate. I bought a superclocked edition because that just happened to be the one that was on sale. And then overclocked it even higher
