Which GPU is better. EVGA vs ASUS

Hey so recently I was looking into buying a graphic card, and personally I do not know much technically about graphic cards to decide which is better. Anyhow long story short, I was checking out the GTX 680's over at amazon because to my knowledge they are pretty much the best around, so I wanted to get one.

So after searching around for a while I found that there was more than just '1' gtx 680, and in fact there were about half a dozen different 'brands' I guess. But what I am asking is, which of these cards are better? I am currently using an ASUS gtx 570, it is ok, although it does not quite make the cut for battlefield 3 because my framerate divers from 40-60 at 'high' settings. Not to mention games with the caliber of crysis coming out, I think I need an upgrade.

I honestly have no idea how to read graphics cards, some insight on this would be fantastic guys!

More about which better evga asus
  1. They are better at different things.

    Reasons I like each:

    EVGA: great customer service, good warranty, step up program which allows you to move up from your current card to a stronger card however I'm not sure how it works with the flagship cards.

    ASUS: great cooling, superior components to that of evga, lower noise, and possibly more headroom if you were to overclock.
  2. EVGA has better customer support but thats about it...
    Asus has better cooling, is quieter due to the better cooling and the quality of the VRMs are better than EVGA's and Asus also have great Customer support so you dont have to worry about that... :)
  3. They have good customer support with some of there products but when it comes to graphics nothing compares to EVGA notta zip.
  4. awesome thanks for the replies guys, taking what you guys have said into consideration so far, i guess that asus is going to be better for performance in games? so i think i am going to go with that maybe i still dont know :S
  5. Get the Asus one if you care about noise, only a whisper above silent. Also consider the 670, cash saved and pretty much the same performance.
  6. thanks for the insight, yeh noise really is not a big deal i really cant hear anything in any case with my headphones being on constantly. the 670 is a good shout but that begs the question again out of the asus and evga 'brand', do the specifications vary much on these two?

  7. Zero what so ever. I would prefer the ASUS card myself. But to answer your question no difference what so ever performance wise between the cards. You will get the same performance with either card however with the asus card it will be quieter and run cooler.
  8. Just buy the Asus. Id go for it... I have an Asus GTX 660 ti and im very happy with it...
