    Zotac graphics cards

    Just wondering are you going to start stocking these manufacturers cards soon?
    They seem very good for price/performance compared to a lot of other brands and considering their parent company is like one of the biggest players in computer component manufacturing, seems like a brand which can only go up in the world.

    If you see another graphics card say if you are looking at an 8800GT, and its the same price as the Zotac, then get that, brands aint that relevant, just check warranty etc.. all the cards are the same, they are all manufactured in the same factory, yes some are overclocked but you pay a premium for those that you should not really have to pay.

    Re: Zotac graphics cards

    Willef I am not making out Zotac to be a brand better than all the rest simply because of the name. I am asking about them because they sell for lower prices than the big names for same card and they also have the fact that their parent company is a major player on the hardware scene (in other words they should be a brand who is trustworthy).

    I would prefer to buy from Scan because the rest of my PC was purchased from Scan and whenever I have a problem with my PC I need only deal with a single company.

    I was only saying, but I'm sure I've seen the zotac cards for the same price as other ones around.

    No brand is better than all rest, all the same except different stickers/boxes.

    Re: Zotac graphics cards

    People would disagree with you there, many would reccomend people buy EVGA for the step up program or to buy BFG cards because their customer service is unmatached etc.

    hehe, the step-up program aint that good, best off selling the card and buying a new one as EVGA's prices they have are usually higher than most E-Tailers charge. And you have to send the cards off the Germany and it can take weeks, so its not as good as it sounds.

    All VGA cards are not the same bar sticker/box as you suggest.
    Some may look the same as they follow nvidia reference designs, individual ram & other component spec can vary considerably as can construction quality and no doubt QA policy. Others use their own custom layouts.
    Also some manufacturers release higher spec versions with prime gpu and ram samples capable of much higher than stock frequencies, often this will be warranted at factory overclock settings.

    Re: Zotac graphics cards

    Hi,

    I'd also like to see Scan add the range of Zotac graphics cards to there product list, the AMP variety is suppose to be the fastest 8800GT on the market, the reviews for the AMP range give nothing but praise. Apprantly Zotac is a subsidury of Sapphire as well so have good backing as well.
