Default PNY Vs. Evga...8800gt 30 price differnece...

looking at getting an 8800gt for my latest rig... and I was wondering PNY or Evga? I looked at the specs on newegg the pny is factory 50mhz slower but i know for a fact that i can get that card to Evga stock levels.... Anything else i should know? Besides step up program? 30 bucks means a dinner out for the G/f...

well there is the fact that pny has a horrible warranty which wotn cover ocing, and it isnt a life long warranty either, the xfx 8800gt is the same price as the pny one on ncix, NCIX.com - Buy XFX GeForce 8800GT XT 512MB 640MHZ 1.9GHZ GDDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I HDCP HDTV Out DIRECTX10 Video Card - PVT88PYDE4 In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy PNY XLR8 GeForce 8800GT 600MHZ 512MB 1.8GHZ DDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I HDCP HDTV Out DIRECTX10 Video Card - VCG88512GXPB In Canada.

actually teh xfx one is cheaper, get it, you get dual life time warranty and it covers ocing.

there is ncix usa aswell. but its priceyer considering the canadian dollar has a much higher value now and is above the us dollar, you can get teh xfx one from newegg for just as cheap as the xfx one, just oc it yourself,Newegg.com - XFX PVT88PYDF4 GeForce 8800GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail
