No love on this? The MSI looks to have a good cooler on it but the EVGA has the great warranty... any suggestions for a single video card solution?

I'd go with the EVGA, just because of the warranty. The cooler looks like it would be able to keep up with the MSI for the most part.

Well I called Sidewinder Computers and pulled the trigger on an EVGA superclocked 580 with an EK Waterblock... setting up a 240 radiator for it in its own loop I knew I couldn't stay away from watercooling more things... Also, I would like to comment on how nice John from Sidewinder was. Should be getting the new loop installed here within the month!

If your an OCer, have a large Case with a watercooled System and are only putting in one high-end Graphics Card a watercooled Graphics Card makes sense, don't know why you were considering aircooled.
