Default Re: EVGA or XFX?

I have an eVGA 6600 and it works great. I guess the consensus is to get whichever is cheaper.

That particular video card looks pretty darn attractive. It's basically overclocked from the factory so you're running at much higher frequency then the rest. Imagine OCing the factory OC, lol. No wonder people's been having heat issues and artifacts popping up.

Yeah, attractive in every sence but the plate of teh fan/heatsinks. Thats the only reason i would buy from a different company. But since i value the CS and quality of the product its EVGA for me
