Thanks for the info matto, now for a closing question.
Should I get it from GIGABYTE now or wait and buy it from EVGA?
I don't know much about GIGABYTE's warranty but I do know EVGA has an amazing reputation.
There will be practically no difference between the two cards as both are reference models (unless the EVGA has a factory overclock). So, I would compare the warranties of both and compare the extras that come in the box to judge overall value.
For example, my PNY came with a full HDMI to mini-HDMI cable, which can cost quite a bit if purchased separately. By the way, PNY has a lifetime warranty, and sells at BestBuy.com for $499.
