Hi all,

Basically this post is to discuss "Wich better"

I can buy the Gigabyte for a hell lot cheaper ( thanks to a friend) so I was wondering if is Overclocked and if it runs as well as the EVGA

Thanks all.

Ralm

EVGA has a better service and is probably as good as Gigabyte for build quality. EVGA's warranty covers overclocking and other stuff that many others don't accept. EVGA's 580 offers a warranty upgrade to 10 years in Europe if you register the card and upload the invoice within 30 days. email EVGA for the info. EVGA support replys to me within 24hrs on working days.

You might decide between service and money

If there reference design cards there all pretty much the same if wait out for non refs you can see a big difference in the market.

I personally prefer eVGA because of their excellent lifetime warranty, but they are both pretty much the same beyond that.

different cards have different warranty. the better the card the better the warranty. the 580 has 10 years in europe and lifetime in U.S

Register within 30 days for the full warranty. EVGA sells extended warranty's too

LOOK:

EUROPE: http://eu.evga.com/support/warranty/

U.S: http://www.evga.com/support/warranty/

OR SELECT YOUR REGION AT TOP RIGHT OF THE PAGE AND NAVIGATE TO THE WARRANTY SECTION

i have the 480 EVGA 10 year warranty

this'll help to contact EVGA: http://www.evga.com/about/contactus/
