i would personally go with the second one..EVGA are a bad make to go with and the second has more clock speed.

eVGA is a bad make? why do you say that?
is that why they have a lifetime warranty iwth their cards?

Both respectable cards, I wouldn't be too fussed either way. But would probably go for the XFX, simply because I've used them in the past.

Addition: You won't need the extra 256mb, not for a while anyway

The XFX one is faster and cheaper so I would go with that one. About the 256mb not needed, thats true. Also when 512mb video RAM is needed this card will be too slow to play the games anyways.

I plan (now that i've seen it) on buying that XFX. I have a 300W PSU and the XFX site lists that as the minimum PSU, will I have any trouble with the card?
