I am looking at getting a GeForce 6800 GS. I have two different links to this graphics card. One is made by PNY and the other is made by eVGA. The eVGA one is $20 more but in my opinion a better brand.

Is the eVGA card worth the extra $20 or should I just get the PNY card and save a little cash?

I see a lot of PNY stuff in computers so it must not be bad. I personally have had problems with PNY on their warrantee's. They have made every excuse they can think of to not replace a part gone bad. I have given up on them and will not buy their parts anymore.

i have 2 video cards and 4 sticks of their memory that do not work and were under warrantee they will not replace.

I haven't had any trouble with PNY in the past. eVGA has some really nice warranty options - like "If you OC, and it breaks, we'll replace it."

I don't know if they'll do that for your card, but look into it. Because 20$ is well worth the cost of pushing your card to its limits. An aftermarket heatsink and fan on a video card can let you do some neat stuff with it.
