Hey,

Both are reference models, so they should be the same. Evga however is known for their great customer support, so I would go with them.

Hope this helps!

I really wouldn't go with either. Now, unless you're on a VERY tight budget, atleast go with a 660. Better bang for the buck. If you're going with a 100$ card, go with a RADEON HD 7770

i agreed. The HD7770 is much better at that price range.

i would spend a little more and get this :

Whats your budget exactly? Those non reference hd7770s that Novuake posted are indeed better, and have more overclocking headroom.

Unfortunately Nvidia is not competitive in the lower end/mainstream cards. Although that is your opinion. We can not suggest it.

If you are on such a tight budget I would go with AMD.
Here is a review:

Look at some of the graphs on the later pages, they show charts in which you can compare the gtx650 to the hd7770.
The hd7770 is better at that price.

Yeah 7770 is a bit faster, though the average difference is small. Nothing you'd really be able to notice. Going back to the original question, I'd take the EVGA for the reason fil1p mentions.
