eVGA's just really reputable, so I'd go with them as my first choice. However, I've personally had no problems with the XFX card I got a few years ago, the thing's solid.

eVGA, but if u dont wanna wait then definitely take the XFX, i dunno why so many people are influenced to hate an XFX because 1 person got a dud card, maybe the guy tried to stick a PCI in a AGP slot cause he was retarted, and everyone went crazy.

i've always heard this "go with EVGA, XFX sucks and they always break down once you play for about a week" i know this has happened before but i've never heard of any recent stories of XFX realy being a bad company.

anyoe with a recent "my xfx card broke on me after a week" story they would like to share?

They're both very solid brands, it's really up to you. Something tells me eVGA is a more solid brand, I'll let you know when my eVGA 7900GT arrives. If it goes badly I'll RMA it and go with XFX.

This thread does me proud. I'm so glad that the opinion has changed.

And I have to agree, eVGA never ever fails
