Up For Debate - Which is Your Favourite GeForce Graphics Card Manufacturer?

Written by Jon Sutton on Sun, Jul 15, 2018 1:17 PM

We’ve had AMD, so it’s only fair we turn our attention to the greener side of life, to Nvidia, naturally. The vast majority of discrete graphics cards around the world carry that iconic logo, but what about the brands that are powering these pixel-pumping brutes?

Pop onto your local digital store and you’ll be met with an array of graphics card brands such as MSI, Zotac, Asus, EVGA, Gigabyte and more. Each of these hardware manufacturers takes the chips from Nvidia and add their own unique twists.

AIB partners can add custom cooling solutions, improve airflow and ergonomics, shrink them down for small builts, or even overclock them right out of the box for improved performance.

When buying your GeForce graphics card do you make sure you seek out the very best version there is? Or are you brand loyal? As soon as there’s a new graphics card do you look straight for your favourite manufacturer? get voting and let us know why below!

I was worried about going with Zotac initially, especially when my card arrived with a DoA HDMI port....but now all these years later, with the card still chugging away, gotta say, I've been extremely happy with it.

Zotac has always been a king in my eyes, often having the highest out of the box OC of any 3rd party model of a set card, only issue is that the AMP! editions are also the 3rd most expensive option of any air-cooled card on market, beaten only by MSI Lightning and Evga Kingpin. MSI has really raised it's value in my eyes with it's solid performance/price ratio with its great but affordable coolers, and I've always drooled over the Lightning editions with their extra power(1x6-pin and 2x8-pin on the 980ti). Asus is also great from what I've heard, but I haven't had a chance to try them out, since there were always better choices

I have had 3 different previous EVGA cards, all of them had problems and had to return them on warranty,


Switched to ASUS, and it has been running beautifully for years now

I had the GTX 560Ti DCU II from ASUS. Very good GPU a few years back. I was a bit unlucky that the 2GB version was above my price renage, cause I would use it a little longer.


Still got it on my shelf tho. Now it's team red for me :)

why 2x EVGA? No thanks, I'd say Zotac but those GPUs are expensive!

I had a Asus GTX 660. Never had a problem with that. My friend also had a asus one. Didn't face any issue. One of the best manufacturer.

EVGA for me, preferably the higher-end coolers,
somehow they manage to squeeze the performance far beyond numbers written in the spec sheets

Here in South Africa GALAX is one of the cheaper brands and both my 970 and 1070 are GALAX. Never had a problem with them.

ugh... EVGA in my country is absurdly expensive...
For example, the cheapest 1060 3 GB costs less than the GTX1050 ti EVGA version - I mean, thats just absurd! Who would go for the lower performance class...

well, during the launch of the last gen cards, this was the most worth it (I was targeting a RX 480 4 gb, but no availability). The GTX 1060 3 gb was tempting, but was 10% more expensive, so definitely not worth it
