Also, that GIGABYTE one isn't a GTX 260 Core 216. There's a difference.

The Gigabyte is a Core 216. I'd personally go for whichever's cheapest, they're identical on a hardware level. Or if there's something non reference with perhaps a better cooler, I'd go with that.

My fault I was tired when I clicked that, read the wrong spec.

It is.

I'd still go with the EVGA though, in terms of which company has better quality hardware from experience, GIGABYTE is also really good though, and $10 cheaper.
