Hey, my graphics card recently died and I was suggested to get a 560 twin frozor in another thread. Heres the link. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... However the reviews mentioned constant failures and artifacts. I'm wondering if this card is worth the price, and is it failure prone? Should i spend an extra 30 and get an evga instead?
I have that exact same model, mine runs perfectly and not had a problem in the 8 months it's been installed. Read around different sources and you will see glowing reviews and feedback, perhaps new egg had a bad batch or something at some point. If you feel $30 buys you piece of mind to go with evga instead then go for it although it would appear evga had a similar problem at somepoint too though: http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=1506151&mpage=1
There will always be a small percentage of users who will experience problems with a product, often people are quicker to complain than they are to praise.
