The Best Graphics Card Manufactuers (NVIDIA)

I'm really board right now :D, and am just making polls. Though I know what the majority is going to vote for, I still want to see the percentages.

If you were to choose between the companies for your graphics card, which one would you choose?

I prefer BFG Tech over the other ones. They have good customer service, a lot of times have the highest overclocked cards (I'm squeamish fer overclocking the cards myself, and I like their lifetime warranty to stay.), and most most importantly, their cards look the coolest :P ;).

  1. EVGA. Why? For their step up (though I have never used it) and because it was the first brand I bought. It (they) worked, so I was happy. Right now I am an ATI guy, though.
  2. BFG because of their always Quality comes first. Solid Built, and reliable:).

    I miss powercolor:( lol
  3. EVGA for step-up and the ability to use aftermarket coolers without voiding the lifetime warranty.
  4. havent had experience with evga or bfg but ive had an xfx card. well 3. their customer service was what made me vote for them and will probably purchase from them again.

    i had a 7900gs agp almost a year ago. 3 months after i bought it the fan died and burned the card. i rma and they replaced. 5 months later trying to overclock my card (which the 7900gs is a beast to overclock) must have gained 200mhz on the gpu and ram and was stable (no artifacts either). so i started playing games, keeping on eye on the temperature. was hovering around 65C. i then decided to up COD4 on max settings in every way. then enjoying the detail too much i failed to see the temp rise to 74C but at that point my computer froze and artifacts went everywhere. GG, guess i shouldnt overclock that much with a stock cooler. anyway the max temp recorded was 74C which according to the technitians at XFX that was a stable temperature. so i RMA'd and they found the card faulty. they then said they were out of the 7900gs AGP so they offered me an 8800GTS 320 pci-e instead free of charge. (which i took as im putting together a new computer right now anyway. :D)
    and thats why i chose XFX.
  5. I have had cards from ATI, Pallit, Innovision, Albatron, Sapphire, MSI, PowerColor and EVGA. I by the card with the right price and have not gotten burnt yet.

    Ouch, 200MHz is pretty good for a 7900GS(AGP or PCI-E), I only managed 150MHz on my stock cooler, but no burn out, currently volt-modded my EVGA(PCI-E) and have taken up higher. The AGP cards probably die due to the PCI-E->AGP convertor on them overheating during use like that and dying, a friend had it happen on his 6600GT AGP with a similar issue, the core temps were considered fine but it died.

    Still keeping my vote in for EVGA, although BFG has a good RMA program a friend had to RMA 3 7900GTs to them in 3 months which doesn't speak much for quality, can't speak for EVGA on their RMA department as my card and every EVGA card me and any one else I know have had are still chugging along.
  7. I would say PALiT, if it's about performance. If value, that depends on the retailer more than manufacturer. PALiT's factory oced 1GB ram g92 8800gts with aftermarket cooler benched above 8800gtx and rivals 8800ultra. It cost more though.

    +1, I think they allow/warranty some OCing too. (Not 100% sure)
  9. eVGA all the way. they're actually the only company i've ever bought a video card from, but hey i've got nothing bad to say about them from my experience :)
  10. I voted EVGA, great solid cards, great stepup and great support. I wonder when Sapphire will be making nVidia cards?
  11. Hmmm, it's gotta be EVGA, but you neglected Point of View, they're really nice, they give you a lot of stuff in the box too.
  12. Voted "I don't care". Anything that is good I'll use, and not to mention the price.

    Though my last few cards were Gigabyte only. I've had a bad experience with ASUS products and I tend to stay away from them.
  13. I'm gonna say XFX. Have had no problems with any of the 3 cards I've had for them, they were obsolete long before they stopped working (and are still working fine in other machines once I upgraded.)
  14. I have to say I am VERY pleased with eVGA. Lifetime warranty which is voided by overclocking or aftermarket coolers, step-up program, and excellent support via phone and forums. Purchase of my 780i mobo and 2x 8800GT has made me a loyal customer for years to come. 5 eggs.
  15. P N Y
  16. I've had XFX cards since i went Nvidia about three years ago, and not a single one has let me down, although i feel the same way about BFG so it's a tie.
  17. This Poll is like comparing brands of Mac & Cheese like i did in High school. Some taste a little better, some are cheaper, some look better... But at the end of the day they all feed your appetite.
  18. I'm actually surprised about how many people don't care what brand. And lol @ jay2tall. Very true.

    It was obvious from the beginning, that eVga was going to win. I'm sure they're a great brand, I just prefer BFG Tech over theirs.

    Wish I could find some benchmarks with this card.
  20. Look here. http://www.legitreviews.com/article/683/3/ Hope this tweaks your palit heheh
  21. Hmmm...

    For NVIDIA-specific cards, I say XFX based on fence-sitting experience (never owned an NVIDIA myself, but other family members have). They're readily available in my area of Australia, they can be price-competitive, and I haven't heard someone whinging about one yet.

    Then again, with no PNY at all, with BFG and PoV being a rarity, and if you can find an EVGA card it has none of the special support the States gets, there's not really a fair comparison (although that may be different for different areas). PALiT is represented by XpertVision where I live, too, but never worked with them before, so not a fair comparison...

    HOWEVER...

    For a company that makes both NVIDIA and ATi cards, I would have to say Gigabyte. Too bad this is the NVIDIA-only poll, since it seems Gigabyte is being pounded here (no votes when I voted) :p

    Oh, and people from other parts of Aus will probably disagree with me on availability, it's simply my area that I take my opinion from.
