I'm about to buy a 7900GT, but I'm wondering whether the brand matters.

I have my eyes on a Asus 7900GT. Is this one just as good as the others?

Advice, please....

I Say Go For eVGA or BFG or XFX ! Because They Have Better Clocks At Stock Settings , and If You Are An OverClocker Go For eVGA as They Have Better OverClocking Ability :twisted:
Leadtek Is Good Too :D

I was looking EVERYWHERE for the GT version and they are out of stock, it seems, everywhere. I gave in, though, and spent $345 for the eVGA super OC one....I think its the one that is 550 and 1730 or something like that. I figured it was worth the 40 dollar premium AND it was in stock at NEW EGG.

Thanks guys. I took your advice and bought the cheapest 7900gt I could find - which was the Asus one - stock 450/1320.

I've read several other places that the pre-oc cards simply just has been applied a newer bios. Hardware is the same.

So I had to try to see if my card could reach the oc speeds........... and YES....

Haven't pushed far enough for artifacting yet, but so far I've reached 610/1800!!! Need some memory cooling before pushing it further (theyre burning at 1800).
