Its 330 dolalrs, and the one I picked is 250. Plus there is no point in buying a SuperOverclocked card, you can just overclock it yourself to higher settings than that anyway.

Overclocking a video card is much much easier then overclocking a CPU, anyone can do (no joke).

Even with that overclock, its not worth 80 dollars anyway.

The Gigabyte has 3 years warrenty, which is more then you will need. In three years you will be due for an upgrade anyway.

Gigabyte makes good cards. Those are both reference models so the cooling isn't going to be much different.

EVGA has a little better reputation, my 260's are EVGA.

But they are not worth 80 dollars thats for sure.

If you really want to spend the extra money just to have EVGA then at least get this...

Although thats still way overpriced, I wouldn't pay more then $275 for a 470.
