    good card. I'm not much a fan of eVGA (prefer XFX to eVGA) but it's not bad.

    more of a personal preference. eVGA has also been more of a "budget" brand than a high-performance brand. Reliability-wise it's still a good card.

    If you're going with that video card, stay away from the 71.89 forceware drivers - drove me absolutely nuts this week with random crashes and freezing (not psu/heat related). Get the 76.45's on guru3d instead. Hopefully somebody else will avoid the agony I went through this week with those fricking drivers...
