    320mb 8800 gts cards

    on scan.co.uk out of the first 6 cards for 8800 gts's(when arranged by price), can anyone recommend one out of them.
    Because they all seem pretty similar, i just wanted to know if one company is known to make a better quality card for the price, or if one has better cooling etc..


    many thanks

    The cards are all the same, with the exception of factory overclocked ones which sometimes also have better specs on memory and other components. Unless you're after a non-standard card or care about the included bundle, you can safely get the cheapest one. That's what I did, for my GTX.

    I can vouch for the BFG and Leadtek as good makes, Palit's i understand to be not so reliable.
    Not had any experience with the Asus, EVGA and Gigabyte models

    The EVGA and BFGs both have good warranty.... says on Scan's website 999 months, but I know for sure that that's not correct for the EVGA, its only 10 years. Longer than you'll need I'm sure, and as the EVGA is the cheapest of those six.......

    With all things considered, I went for the EVGA yesterday. Excellent reviews, excellent warranty and the possiblity of using their Step-Up programme. If the 8800 series does take a big price-drop like some are predicting in the near future, then stepping-up to say a 640mb card or even a GTX might not be a big hit considering you pay the difference between the price you originally paid and the new card
