I really like msi. I've had bad experiences with sapphire, but they have good customer service.

Have one in my PC and used them in 2 different builds for people. Great cards IMO.

huh guess i know even less about computers than i thought, i thought video cards and gpus were the same thing. this is why i bought a prebuilt. feel free to laugh at me now.


Well, they're not entirely the same thing...

No I ment the part where he bought a prebuild when he could just done a quick google search.

i bought a prebuilt because i'm pretty much computer illiterate and don't care enough about them to learn more and didn't want to waste close to a grand on something i wasn't sure i'd be able to make work.

Before I built my computer the only thing I knew how to plug in was an USB Flash Drive, I only watched a 2 hour video on how to built a PC, and thats all it took, its really easy.

well my msi card really underperformed in my last rig that i just sold (7859 twin frozr oc), it performed worse at the stock overclock than a non overclocked card... but that was probably due to my crappy mobo. the thing overclocked like a monster and never once went above 60C after adjusting the fan profile (from 30 min to 40 min, and the fan speed would never go above 55%). So at stock it wasn't great other than the temps but it overclocked very nicely.

that's the only card i've ever had (dont know what was in my old dell from 2002) so i'm going to give MSI my loyalty. i'm probably going MSI again with my next build too (mobo and graphics card).

Asus, but don't buy their laptops.

I have an old Asus Netbook (the Asus EEE) that I bought more than 4 years ago and still works perfectly. ^^

I don't know how the new Asus Laptops are though, since I don't buy laptops anymore.
Everything is nice and cool... until the roach starts to fly!

I go for the cheapest, but I guess if they were all the same price, EVGA. They are local and I used to work there. Good guys.
You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.
