    I completely understand where you're coming from as they're UK based. However, unless you volt-mod, BIOS flash, dosomethingstupid, you shouldn't have to go through any RMA process. ;)

    That's unfortunate. I haven't had a Leadtek fail on me yet. *Crosses fingers*

    From the list...Leadtek has to be the best pick!!
    Apart from that...what about Gainward?? :D

    I would agree BUT you have to consider the location of the buyer in each case. I personally don't mind being located in the U.S. and purchasing a product from a company based out of the UK, but there are those that would. Gainward and Leadtek are by far the most popular of the overseas brands.

    Last time we had a big thread comparing all the manufacturers, someone was banned... so lets take it easy!

    I personally would always go with EVGA. The warranty is awesome, especially how you can add any HSF you want, and the steup up program is a great idea. Another huge plus in my books, the shims they have are very aesthetically pleasing, unlike the ones with strange animals/fairys/scantly clad women/ads for games.
    My least favorite is BFG, on account of how they give you a tiny OC then charge you $30 for it. (In Canada, at least)

    May i ask why someone got banned? Did it turn into a flame war or something?

    The answer is very simple, if you live in North America the best brand IMHO is eVGA, very good customer service, RMA service, warranties, and Tech support. Then comes BFG, very good RMA service, but their Tech support isn't all that, and they have good warranties. After that comes XFX, so far I have not dealt with them regarding anything, yet, but the double lifetime warranty is a good thing.

    So, to sum it up, eVGA, then BFG, then XFX.


    P.S. I have had PNY in the past but I don't recommend them.

    Yes they are. After you have been around a while, you tend to warm up to other manufacturer's OUTSIDE of your own personal experience based on positive feedback from trusted members.

    Good idea to give everyone a heads up Kon$olE.

    I think the poorest company is Gainward. I had two or was it three broken 6800 GT "GS" card one after another. Fan was so loud that I still can not believe it. Dunno if things have changed after all that company has been sold for another maker after I bought that "mistake". Best Nvidia card (or card) I (have) own(ed) is ASUS GeForce 6600 AGP, that's something else it idled at 32c and it did not go above 50c even when oced crazily.

    i haven't had experience with any other company for nvidia, except VisionTek (gf3) and EVGA (7800GT).

    I believe visiontek went over to ATI side. But I'm loving my 7800GT. Great cards with a great price. Never had to RMA or call tech support, since I've never had a problem with it.

    (according to other people, they are good with their Customer Relations)

    I know what you mean, some people are actually unreasonable when it comes to different manufacturers, even more so when it comes to ATi or NVIDIA and AMD or Intel. I can understand preference, i have my own preferences but i can acknowledge that other brands can have better features/specs/looks etc.

    Frankly it doesn't surprise me that someone could get so irate about what brand is best, but it still seems completely stupid that such a thing could happen. I realise that some people will stick by a brand come hell or high water, especially when someone might have spent a lot of money on that one brand, this is probably to do with self justification for spending a lot of money, or.......... something.

    Back to the subject,since Deadman93723 mentioned it, i had a PNY card too and found it was very good for overclocking. It was a GeForce FX 5700LE, at the time i had very little knowledge about such things and got it from PC World cause they said it was half price, if i had known what i know now i wouldn't of got it but it was a good card for overclocking and served me well for a a good year and still works today.

    I too have an FX 5700LE and it was a monster overclocker. Stock clocks on that card are 250/400 and mine easily achieved 410/625. Quite impressive without a voltmod and all on the stock cooler!
