Hello. I might be buying a 8800GT soon. I found these 2:

EVGA E-GEFORCE 8800GT 600MHZ 512MB 1.8GHZ DDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I HDTV Out Video Card - $239.99 CAD

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=27142&promoi...
Palit GeForce 8800GT 600MHZ 512MB 1.8GHZ DDR3 PCI-E DVI-I HDCP HDTV Out Video Card - $239.99 CAD

These have the same price and I need to decide really fast, probably before the on sale ends or units sold out, which ever comes first. I've never heard Palit before, but the cooler on the Palit one looks very nice and its a dual slot one which pushes air out of case and it has ramsink. The EVGA one has lifetime warranty and 90day step-up, but I'm not sure whether it has fan speed issues or not. I need help in deciding. If the Palit one ocs well and has a nice quality (doesn't go down) I might consider it over EVGA one. Please help me fast thanks.

i've heard of palit and tested a couple of low end cards-nvidia 6600le and a 7600gt i think.they don't overclock well and use the reference card specs.the memory used isnt tht great.palit also makes Ati cards.they seem to make low-mid range cards.dunno abt their 8800gt offering Bottomline:NOT A GOOD BUY
get evga / xfx

I've never heard of Palit, is it a Canadian company? Anyways, that fan looks a ton of a lot better on it than the EVGA one. I'd check their warranty policy. I've also heard of Canadians having problems with EVGA because they have to play duties, which make the RMA process a lot more costly. So if Palit is Canadian and they have a good warranty, I'd go with them.
