They both have the same clocks. I would probably go with the EVGA even though the warranty is less.

The reviews are better and from my personal experience you can't go wrong with a EVGA.

I've heard mixed results with PNY customer service.

the PNY card have higher clock and cheaper. normally people would go for it but i heard PNY support and warranty are no really good (that's why some people don't like it if they want to get quadro since PNY are the only board partner that makes quadro)
if you really card about warranty stuff then just go for EVGA. the price difference is isn't much after rebate. don't worry about the clocks though since you can do overclock the card yourself. most GTX460 able to hit 850mhz on the core on stock voltage

No real preference, I think they are clocked about the same. Evga has some extra goodies in their warranty and has a step up program. Just some thoughts.

Also, why not get a GTX560. This one is $200 after $30MIR.

^NM missed the MIR on the EVGA. Unless you want to step it up a notch.

Lifetime warranty on the PNY and usually good bundled extras. I bought my PNY card after posting a "Is PNY a good video card brand" thread, and no one said anything negative about them. I know of a couple others on here who went for the PNY Xceler8 series with no complaints. Unless someone else on here has direct personal experience with PNY that resulted in a negative, I would say go for the PNY.

I just posted this in another thread. I thought it was kinda shady in regard to warranty. I don't have anything negative to say about their product though. This is sorta deceiving in regard to their "lifetime" warranty in comparison to other companies I know of.

The 6950 is far superior in the $200-210 range, don't waste your money on a 560ti.

6950's in Xfire and 3way Xfire, consistently beat GTX570's in SLI and 3way SLI and they are cheaper than GTX560's.

The inevitable, "but there's an AMD card you should also consider...".

Jay, you have to go specifically to the lifetime warranty for the Xceler8 series, which does not have that part you highlighted. I have examined it a couple times and there is really nothing to be concerned about that I can see. Here it is to see for yourself:

The cheapest 6950 1GB I found was $239 on Newegg. Not sure where you are getting $200-$210. Secondly, the benches for the 1GB version of the 6950 are very similar to the 560Ti (close enough to call it a draw IMO). The 2GB version is clearly faster and has the ability to be reflashed to perform like a 6970 but you will not find a 2GB for the price of a 560Ti.
