Best company to buy my GTX 760

I'm trying to decide whether to buy my 760 graphics card from either Gigabyte, EVGA, or MSI. I'm pretty convinced the MSI is the best card, but I'm concerned about their support should something go awry.

Does anyone have advice in terms of which route to take? Should I fear MSI customer service?

Thanks

I would also recommend the MSI or Galaxy board.

Historically I look for the Asus DCII TOP, MSI Lightning, EVGA Classified and Gigabyte Windforce OC

But Asus and Gigabyte have toned down their aggressiveness on factory OCs, and I haven't seen the Lightning or Classified. From what I have seen so far on the 760s, id say, choose from these:

GIGABYTE GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC 2.0 1085 MHz 1502 MHz Boost Clock: 1150 MHz, 11.61 inches
MSI GTX 760 Gaming 1085 MHz 1502 MHz Boost Clock: 1150 MHz, 10.24 inches

Do you have any opinion on how MSI and GIGABYTE customer support compare ?

Instead of a factory overclock which can be matched with relative ease, I prefer to pick cards based on their load temps and noise levels. The Galaxy and MSI boards seem to have the best combination of both.

How's EVGA though?

Yes. However, customer support quality varies for every company with the passing of time so there is no concrete way of pinpointing whether you would have stellar or mediocre support over the next three years regardless of which manufacturer you pick.
