Ok im sorry im creating a thread for this, but can someone quickly let me know which one of these to buy as im getting them at almost the same price. Will be buying in the next couple hours, so dont have time to research enough and there are very little articles on the galaxy 680.

Please, can someone let me know which one is the better card, accessories wise and performance wise?

On the off chance you live in Canada I'd go with the Zotac. Only because they have an RMA facility in Canada which saves the hassle of cross-border shipping. Recently RMAed a 480 to them and had a 570 back in a weeks time, they also kept me posted via emails about receipt of the return, the offer to switch and shipping notification when the replacement was sent.

The RMA process was decent in my experience.

Honestly , both of those companies have poor customer service. If you want to buy for warranty, my choice would be asus (first) msi, evga. I am however an Asus fanboy so I may be biased. In fact, every motherboard i've used in the past 6 years has been asus. I love them :) (I also have an asus P8Z77-V Deluxe on the way!_)

^That's funny, the first DOA motherboard I have every had has been as Asus. The Gigabyte ones I have used have been rock solid.

Yeah, i'd probably share your opinion if I had a bad experience ;)

Its been good for me though. If I ever get a DOA asus motherboard i'll definitely switch, so far its been great though.

Galaxy is actually as good or better than EVGA. After you register your card, you're assigned a personal rep who helps you out if you need anything. If anything, it's ASUS that has the garbage RMA process. Everyone loves their hardware, however, so no one acknowledges this.

Remember with EVGA you have to pre-pay for advanced RMA and it is at least 29.99 plus you only have 30 days from the time of registration to add it. Also, you must purchase an extended warranty on any card that has a -KR suffix if think you will want to step up in the future. They have a lot of nit-picky things with their promotions.

Woah, thanks for all the advise guys. Got the Galaxy one with a 3 year warranty, which is EPIC in my opinion. Im from India, so the availability of the 680 is a little low. Also, Asus have priced their cards at a very high value as compared to the others here , around 20 $ more, which is a LOT in Indian currency.

Thanks for all the help guys. XD
Cheers.

P.S. Guess which game i played first with the card. League Of Legends X@
