I don't personally have anything against eVGA, but it annoys me to no end when I see everybody here telling people to get it just because they are all fanboys of eVGA. It offers no benifits over ANY of the cards. If eVGA really did release a product that was really better the others, then I would recommend to get it, but they don't, and until they do, Leadtek all the way.
Leadtek sucks, eVGA has the best ratings for the 6 series sorry to inform you.

You're just a dumb fanboy.

Ok then despite what 003 is saying go for eVGA, and get the gigabyte board. Also get the memory you planned.

See, look at that. It just proves my point. He dosn't really care if another company makes a better product, because he is just a fanboy of eVGA.

Well when people argue provincially, it's no good to come and ask. I just know for a fact eVGA has an awesome rep. with the 6 series GPU.

I think your PC coupled with high speed internet should work just fine. It's a nice pick too

Prove it. You just say that because you are a fanboy. Just because they have had a good reputation, does not mean another company can come up with something better.

I am not trying to start anything you little kid. All I am saying is that eVGA, among customers has a better reputation. Everything I have always heard is that Leadtek is not the one you want to get. I am sure some people are wrong and leadtek is good with some stuff as well.

Why do they have a good rep? Because they make good cards!


"Just because they have had a good reputation, does not mean another company can come up with something better. "

You just told me eVGA couldnt out do Leadtek...

"You just say that because you are a fanboy."

Quit acting like a 5 y/o and grow up.
