Well usually they put superior parts to handle the OC, in the OC version of a video card. But if you overclock the stock card you can probably reach the level of the OC version, before that card gets overclocked. The thing with EVGA is that it's a bit pricier, but you can 'step up' if EVGA releases a newer/faster/better video card in the next 90 days. If you don't plan on stepping up, by all means go with the cheaper XFX card and save yourself some money.
Evga has customer support 24/7
most of my computer consists of evga items.
their products are built with quality and live longer
where as xfx doesnt give *** about you after you've bought their item.
xfx does have cooler designs but evga is better and cheaper.
thanks for all your input
Ive ordered the evga gtx260 superclock. 3 reasons
i heard their customer support is good and lifetime warrenty
farcry 2 is no biggie
the black and red casing suits my rig theme as ive got black and red theme going on
well I own both brands EVGA and XFX video cards......both work with out problem, the one thing I like over EVGA is that XFX has double life time warranty.....it's not much but if you up date a lot like some people do, it's a good selling point.....all in all both rock solid products to own......my 2 cent on the subject..
