Hi,
I'm looking to build a computer for the first time.
Depending on the prices of cards, I will buy one in about 3 months.
However, I don't know how to choose which brand of graphics card. ..Asus, EVGA, MSI...
Prices for the 560Ti on newegg range from $200 to $280.
What's the difference? If warranties are the same, shouldn't they all be equal?
Thanks.

A lot of Gpu's are coming out in the next three months. I would comeback in three months and ask then if your still unsure.

Best solution

As previous posted said I wouldn't start shopping until you are ready to buy. As far as brands go Sapphire and Diamond are great for AMD cards and EVGA is a staple for Nvidia. If you do end up buying soon the 6870 is your best choice, although it has slightly lower performance compared to the 560ti, its also on average $60 cheaper atm.

Let's say I wanted to buy a 6870 today, how do I choose the make?
MSI, Gigabyte, XFX, Sapphire.... I don't understand why prices range so much.
What specs do I need to look at? Or is it just reliability n warranty?

The price point of the 560 Ti is good for me. I can get the MSI Twin Frozr for $195. Great deal.
