What is the best brand for AMD Graphics cards?

I think that it is generally accepted that EVGA is the best for Nvidia but I am wondering what the best brand for AMD cards is. I know that this tops os rather fan boyish but I would just like a straight answer. Thanks guys!

  1. I think that would go to Sapphire.
  2. Best answer
    There really isn't a "best brand" for either chipset maker. The best performance for an individual card changes depending on what model card you're talking about. The best performing 770 probably won't be from the same manufacturer as the best performing 760.

    People used to stick with EVGA because they had a lifetime warranty on the cards (IF you were the original purchaser from an approved distributor and IF you registered the card within 30 days of purchase.). They don't offer lifetime warranties anymore. Personally, I prefer warranties like the one Asus uses - 3 years from date of manufacture, no registration required. This means you can buy a used Asus card, even off craigslist, and have a warranty on it. 3 years covers the effective lifespan of most video cards for me.

    Good manufacturers for either chipset are: Asus, Gigabyte, EVGA, Sapphire. Zotac is a newer company, but so far they have produced quality cards. This list is by no means exhaustive, though.

    So what company would you say makes the highest quality cards?
  4. HIS was good for me. Had a HIS HD 6750 that worked fine. Only took it out because it had DDR3 memory. But card was sound.
