If the card is built on the NVIDIA reference design, the main differences are the warranty policy and customer support. Also, a few have special programs, like EVGA's Step-Up program.

like Stetty said. there is no difference in t he cards. They are all based on Nvidia's design. The only difference is the Cost, Warranty, and Support.

Some companies have really crappy customer support while others have great support. so they charge more.

same if there is a warranty. All major companies have lifetime warranties. I think (eVGA does)

It's all depends on personal preference.

oh, and when choosing cards. please don't buy a stock overclocked card. its just a market scheme to get money from people who don't know how to OC on their own.

for example, my 8800gt had a "superclocked edition" which basically just had it's bios flashed. and then they OCed it to some stats..

and it cost $30 more..

I bought the normal version, and took it home, and in less than 5 min, i had better clocks then it.

just a thought.
