the chaintech has the potential to overclock good, but i don't know about their quality//warranty

the leadtek runs cool, but don't get the extreme TDH one, since it's just an overclocked version of the 6600gt (just get a 6600gt and overclock it yourself and save money)

i'd go with either the eVGA or the leadtek

Usually these cards can be overclocked over 10%, to speeds of 550 \ 1100 with no problem.

The eVGA is one of the best overclockers and the most reliable. Expisally since your in india probolly making an RMA a big hassle, you want to make sure the card actually works

100% agreed with kadahaf

chaintech SUCKS, man I will never buy them again, card died, RMA'd it, 7 months later this ones dying, they are just sub-par quality.

eVGA is great quality and so is leadtek, and leadtek has a better stock heatsink I believe.

Hands down go with one of those two

Come on people i need some more answers. Suggest suggest. I live very far and getting something from the US is quite hard so return is next to impossible. Please suggest a card that is robust enough to endure a air/train and then road ride !!!
