now i am thinking of upgradeing my Gpu .. i have been a AMD fan for a long time but after checking the benchmarks and the power costs aswell as the temperatures i found out that GTX 670 is a pretty solid gpu that even goes and beats the 7970 at 1920X 1080...(now i dont want any suggestions of which GPU to buy etc as i have already made up my mind on GTX670)..
however... here in Pakistan only 2 brands are avilable... EVGA.. which costs around 46k Rupees... and Sparkle which comes with Replace warrenty and a price tag of 39k (cheaper and better service than EVGA)
but i am not sure about sparkle.. can any1 suggest me if its a good buy?
I got a Sparkle that has been working under normal daily use since 2008. The model is nothing fancy, in fact it is just GT8500. But if such a low end card can last for almost 4 years without any hiccup, I expect more from higher end models. & the replace warranty is a good safety net in case you get a bad one.
I've had a Sparkle GTX460 for the longest time and its still working after being fitted into 4 different computers between 2 different people. I have it paired with a new Celeron G530 right now and it works like a charm.
Sparkle seems to be fine to me.....as long as you are cool with saying "I've got a Sparkle graphics card"
