Later....So I don't mean to flame.....well...yes I do actually. Here you are - posting in a HARDWARE forum, giving advice - or just bsing so that you can sound smart - but yet you do no research and get upset whenever anyone posts anything that you don't like. Please, do us all a favor - research - offer something useful to say - or just shut up.
eVGA offers a full lifetime warranty covering "tinkering". You can replace the hsf - overclock the card - reflash the card - as well as a number of other physical mods.
Again Maleficarus - learn your facts - stop trying to a know it all and get over it - and for god's sake - stop saying a company makes bad equipment because you dont like your name.
Word to the op - your asking a question about who makes the best and what not - your going to get a lot of answers - do research based upon the answers you get. Don't blindly believe anything anyone tells you here.
