[Solved] Evga 460 or zotoc 560?

Hi,

I am stuck between the evga gtx 460 (with lifetime warranty):
http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-External-Lifetime-Warranty-01G-P3-1371-AR/dp/B003VWW2KK/ref=sr_1_7?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1316651140&sr=1-7

and a similarly priced ($10 more) zotac gtx 560:
http://www.amazon.com/GeForce-Express-Displayport-Graphics-ZT-50701-10M/dp/B0050I1P2Y/ref=sr_1_13?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1316652276&sr=1-13#productPromotions

So basically is zotac a good company? I know the evga is kinda the tried and true manufacturer (the lifetime warranty is suppose to be great). But I think that zotac now is suppose to have something kind of equivalent to this.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

  1. Go with the better one i.e GTX560 & If i m not wrong u can't claim these warranty in case gpu is affected due to psu.Also u r not going to spend whole life with same card ;)
  2. Go for the 560 Zotac. If your afraid of the brand, dont be, its perfectly fine. Have one of my cards, a zotac 460, used w/o any issues whatsoever.
  3. Thanks for the replies guys. Just bought the Zotac card and it should be here Saturday!
