If you're willing to spend that much on the EVGA, then pick up an 8800GTS 512 off of newegg. The 8800GTs are also around the same price as the xfx one on newegg, but there is an 8800GTS as low as 169.99, although I don't know much about ECS, so I personally bought the MSI one for 194.99.

what i like about the XFX is basically the PCB, lol. black is da colour of my system....green is the part that i will be seeing in my computer and it will stand out like a bitch... also, the XFX is $30 cheaper, and seeign as how im gonna get two of em...thats $60 savings :) 

what i like about the evga is its kick ass cooling system so i can overclock it heaps and the fact that evga is the same brand as my board and that just appeals to me...lol

thanks in advance.

+1 for XFX cards, I have had two of them in SLI for the last six months and they have not had a single issue other than the standard fans are loud, but as I had a pair of Zalman VF900's to hand this wasn't really a problem as such.
