I am just doing some research and came across a what seems to be pretty good deal. I am just curious if I should choose on over the other.


Thank you

The ECS card does not specify the core and memory clock so I can't say for sure if its overclocked or not.
The only difference I can think of is the warranty.

ECS's Warranty
Warranty Period guarantees against defects in workmanship and manufacturing. The warranty is effective from the date of ECS' original invoice, unless stated otherwise in writing.
- ECS brand Motherboards warranty cover from ECS Invoice 36 months for parts and 24 months for part and labor.
- ECS brand Motherboards with CPU Bundle warranty cover from ECS Invoice 12 months for parts and labor.
- ECS brand VGA Card with NVIDIA Chipset warranty cover from ECS Invoice 36 months for parts and 24 months for part and labor.
- ECS brand VGA Cards with all other Chipset warranty cover from ECS Invoice 12 months for parts and labor.
- ECS brand all other products warranty cover from ECS Invoice 12 months warranty for parts and labor.

EVGA's Warranty
- supports limited lifetime warranty
- they cover any damage to the card as long as it's not physical (i.e. damaged by trying to overclock it too high, or if lightning fries it because it was not protected by a surge protector)

Thanks for the reply
It seems like such a good price, almost too good to be true. It got awesome reviews but no one has it any length of time.

In addition to the warranty difference, when compared to ECS, the EVGA will be higher quality. The EVGA has a higher core clock speed. Also, EVGA has much better tech support, and the Step-up Program.

It's up to you to decide if these things are worth $55.

(Looking at both prices makes me cringe... I bought the EVGA 8800GTS 512MB the day it came out for $370!)
