Which brands are better at what? There are so many brands and so many different versions its hard to keep them straight.

I am going to be upgrading my gpu in the next month and I'm not sure what brands I should be focusing on. I know evga is probably the safe bet but what do the different brands do well? Some of the better prices I've seen on the zotacs but I know nothing about then. I will probably be getting a 560ti 2gb as I plan to sli by the end of the year. Thoughts?

For AMD, Asus, MSI, XFX, Sapphire, and Gigabyte
For Nvidia, EVGA, Asus, MSI, Gigabyte

If the card is reference its all about warranty, because the cards are the same. It doesn't matter if its a company I listed or not, they are the same. Non-reference cards I listed my favorites up top. ASUS and MSI have my favorite aftermarket coolers.

Apparently someone had a bad experience with MSI cards. Personally I've had a half a dozen of them over the years, and never had a problem
