Default Video Card Questions

Is there any difference in performance between a vanilla XFX 7900GT and a eVGA 7900GT?

Is it better to get a vanilla version of a video card or one of those factory overclocked cards?

Would a 7900GT come with a DVI cable for your monitor?

Thanks in advance.

there is no noticable diffence....
its like comparing one pencil to another. They both work teh same, they both are pencils, but one is usually a tiny bit better.

Evga is the best company out there for video cards
(besides ATI+Nivida)

XFX usually has more DOA's and malfunctions.
They perform the same tho.

They won't come with a DVI cord.

The overclocked versions are warranted to that speed. A normal card can go that fast but its not guaranteed.
