I have seen recently Sparkle video cards for cheap.
My question is that is this Sparkle making quality gpu-s or not. Is it worth to buy or not. Any experiences with them?
They are considerably cheaper then gigabyte or asus.

"They are considerably cheaper then gigabyte or asus."

There might be a reason for that.

Electronics (and that includes computers parts of course) is one area where paying for quality is a must. Yeah, you could get a cheaper mobo, PSU, GPU, but more often than not, you'll regret it sooner rather than later.

aziraphale basically said it. There's probably a reason for it.

Research, research, research.

I've heard a lot of good things about Sparkle.

Sparkle are a decent enough brand. Cards these days are usually only differentiated by the bundle they come with, perhaps some extras like better / quieter cooling solutions, pre-overclocks and the warranty.

Ok, thanks guys. Anyway I am not willing to spend extra money on bundled apps or pre-oveclocked stuff, because i can do overclocks my self :)
