EVGA is my personal favorite.

EVGA, ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, Palit are the best. (IMO)

They are all really good, any of those will be fine. The only difference is cooling and overclocking (which you can do yourself).

All three are what I consider the best distributors of nVidia cards currently. MSI has the Twin Frzr version, EVGA has the life time warranty and setup program for some of their cards, Asus has a great warranty and tends to bin their cards better, which means better overclocking.

You can't go wrong with any of them. I recommend the MSI Twin Frzr or whichever is cheapest.

Asus for overclocking, EVGA for the warranty and MSI for the price (you really can't go wrong with either). I have had my bad shares with Palit so I really can't recommend them.

If I were to put them in order...

EVGA>Asus>MSI>GB>Zotac>Galaxy>Palit

EVGA is a breeze for warranty and dealing with. My 8800 GTX went down and they sent me a replacement GTX 260 with no problems.

Yeah I guess I should have told you why I reccomend EVGA, their warranty and customer service is amazing. I had a problem with one of my 260s and I got it all settled in a day with no hassle.

Their 90 day step up program is really really nice too, I doubt you would be using it with a 470 though.

I wouldn't go as fa as saying its the best 470 out there, its just a factory OC'ed card with a fancy sink. To be honest I would rather go with the new MSI Twin Frozr GTX 470.

MSI Twin Frozr GTX 470 is a good card too. it is cheaper than gigabyte's. but MSI use 2 fan instead of 3 fan so customer claim MSI's card failed on 800MHz OC. If buy graphic card today, I will pick Gigabyte 470 for sure. Gigabyte product has better quality overall

My experience with MSI has been that I've never even had to worry about the warranty! Plus, it is better over the others (maybe just a tad!) because their cooling and noise (despite the fact that there are TWO FANS running!) levels are really low! You don't go wrong with them! :)  See this:

This one's for $259 are mail-in rebate!

They are decent. I've heard some success stories with their customer support too.
