um.... first of all... post count doesn't matter at all... 2nd nobody who posted before you said that XFX or eVGA stinks....

if you cant decide, get whichever is cheapest at the time.

thats true... and theres nothing better than the satisfaction of paying $40 less for a card you overclocked yourself instead of paying extra for an overclocked one (unless your in the rare situation that the OC'ed one is actually cheaper_

well... don't go to a store.... most people here go to Newegg.com or Zipzoomfly.com and buy it there... because most of the time even with shipping its cheaper to buy online but the only downside is you have to wait to get it... but Newegg usually ships in 1 or 2 Business days

Problem is that i live in Ireland and when i try to buy from newegg and post it to my mates place in Texas it wont let me cause im not from U.S. I've mailed them to see if there's anything they can do but wont hear from them till tomorrow. Need a U.S based credit card and they dont ship international which is a pain

Also if you buy it from a store in texas, there is going to be sales tax, which is going to add another 25 bucks or so to the price.
