    QOTW: Which brand of graphics card do you use?

    And do you tend to stick with the same partner, or are reference boards now tickling your fancy?

    Re: QOTW: Which brand of graphics card do you use?

    Using Nvidia (GTX1660Ti) on my Ubuntu box. It works pretty well with no fuss.

    I would like to try an AMD card as a learning exercise, but looking at prices and availability. I don't think I'll be trying that anytime soon.

    Re: QOTW: Which brand of graphics card do you use?

    For AMD cards I always go for Sapphire, never had any problems with it. I had one XFX at one point and it was running very hot and noisy. As for NVidia, whichever is cheapest, usually Palit, just like at the moment(Gtx 1660 StormX).

    EVGA Nvidia GTX 1070. Over 3 years old, but still chugging along pretty well. Can still play the games I want to at decent FPS.

    Currently AMD in the form of a 5700XT Sapphire Pulse (also had a Sapphire 4870 back in the day). So far I've only had a single nVidia card and that was an ex-demo MSI 970GTX which did me proud for a good number of years (part of the reason for the purchase of an MSI x570 motherboard really... well partly, that and the fact the Unify has zero RGB).

    Last 10 years all Sapphire AMD cards. One reference model, Vega 64 and two AIB models Fury Tri-X and 5700xt Pulse. Never had a problem. Now KFA 2 3090 (Galax brand)and all good so far.

    I have an Asus 3080 at the moment build quality appears good, but no I am not brand/partner loyal for most things.

    Re: QOTW: Which brand of graphics card do you use?

    My last few have been EVGA Nvidia cards. One with the oem water block but others I have put an aftermarket water block on.
    Currently using an RTX 2070 with an alphacool block fitted.
    Had no issues with Evga cards or with Alphacool.
    Just waiting for a water-cooled 3080 to appear in stock somewhere. The iChill one is catching my eye currently.

    EVGA GTX 970 SSC. Having lost over £500 on a Zotac GTX 590 failing just after it's warranty and the disgusting mark-ups being put on GPUs these days, I'm only getting cards from manufacturers that offer a 10 year warranty.

    Re: QOTW: Which brand of graphics card do you use?

    Last two have been Nvidia Founders Edition cards, build quality is solid, aesthetically they also look a lot better than the AIB cards (in my opinion). AMD side of things I tend to lean towards Sapphire (build quality).

    Currently mainly AMD but only because that's what I had...
    No need for a real cutting edge gaming card - though the missus could use a faster card I guess...

    Re: QOTW: Which brand of graphics card do you use?

    My current card in an MSI GTX980Ti. I've alost exclusively had nVidia cards since I replaced my old 3dfx Voodoo3-3000 with a GeForce 2, but I have no loyalty to any particular card manufacturer.

    I'd wanted to upgrade, but 8GB VRAM put me off nVidia, and total lack of affordable cards put me off everyone this generation.
