Buy directly from EVGA?

My dad just approved that i can get a gtx 580 and the 580 back plate from evga. i usally buy from newegg but we think it would be a better idea to buy directly from them. If anyone have ever ordered from them before how fast is there shipping and what not.

  1. Why would it be any better? And I've never heard of buying directly from them but doesn't mean it's not possible.
  2. Just talked to evga they do sell direct:)
  3. why would there be any difference? buy the evga were ever you can get it cheaply buying it directly from evga is not going to increase the warranty at all and most of the time it will be more then say a newegg or tiger direct which model are you considering? what is it priced on newegg vs evga, which ever is cheapest buy it there newegg shipping is usually amongst the quickest anyways
  4. who buys their kids 500 dollar gpus? you are damn lucky kid
  5. Evga is lower then tigerdirect and the same price as newegg and i get a free 20$ backplate from evga aso free shipping newegg is 7.99

  10. huh whats the purpose of that just to cover the back of the board? kinda worthless unless it serves some cooling function imo, but if its protective and free and cheaper at evga to buy you made the right choice, just wandering what the heck is that thing for, I mean its not like its a waterblock or something
  11. Back plate usually help lower the temps on card but not all the time. well see

    how? that makes no sense, its not like it has heat spreaders on it? I would just think that it is to protect the back of your card/make it more durable which is kinda worthless but may look nice, let me know if it makes a difference temp wise with it on and off, I doubt it does but am curious to know
  13. also you will need a t6 torx wrench to install that fyi if you already didn't know
