Getting a gtx 580 soon, just wondering what you guys think would be the best brand.

I was thinking of getting the EVGA SC version for 2 free games, 10 year warranty, free 3Dmark11, but the sparkle version (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) Looks beastly with all the fans for cooling.

Just wondering what you guys think.
Going to be replacing a ati 5870 1gb.

1Ghz GTX 580? How did they get enough power for that? Seems like the wires would melt or something...

Anyway, IMO OC cards aren't worth any more b/c most stock cards can get at least another 20% or so even at stock voltage. Even if it does have two games I'd still just get the $499 one.

I'm seeing the Sparkle out of stock. The 810mhz overclock is not too high vs. the 772mhz stock speed. That does look like an Arctic Cooling Acelero Extreme cooler on there which should keep the card very quiet and cool.
