What would you go with here?

MSI ($260):

EVGA ($250):
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=8521681&Sku=EVG-101770838


Both come with a free download of Assassin's Creed IV. I'll be using an i5 4670k, and SLI capable mobo.

I prefer EVGA myself. I've never had any bad experiances with them and so far, I've had a DOA card or even a card burn out on me from them.

MSI is good too, but since I prefer evga and its cheaper in this case I would go for that.

If the MSI was significantly discounted over the evga like $30 or more, I'd probably go with it even though im in evga fan boy.

The EVGA since it looks nicer.

Let strength be granted, so the world might be mended.

I already have a sticker on my case that says EVGA so if I chose anything else I'd be lying.

I'm currently using an EVGA 760, so maybe I'm biased, but I agree with all of the above. Their warranty extensions are great too, they'll do a free upgrade to the current equivalent if your card ever dies, up to 10 years after purchase.

Does that cost extra? Or is that in there standard policy?

EVGA. Better customer service, MSI doesn't hold a candle to them.

It was 3 years standard I believe, something like 10 to extend to 5 years and 20 for a decade.
