    Thumbs down Do you recommend GIGABYTE Graphics cards?

    I'm thinking about getting Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 7850 but i'm a bit hesitant by the name of its brand Gigabyte as I couldn't find a single video of Gigabyte 7850 on youtube. No reviews, no unboxing or gameplay videos. All videoi that I see are of Sapphire 7850 which is not available here.
    Thanks :)

    Well, Gigabyte, in general, I highly recommend. As far as GPUs go, my general rule of thumb has been;


    I finally gave up on evga as a company. I have not been happy with their customer service regarding motherboards and general support. When I was in the market for a new GPU, I decided to give Gigabyte a try. I have never had issue with their products, in general. They have a great customer service staff, that is always willing to help. Also, they had the strongest available single GPU available at the time, at a killer price on the egg.

    Posting a link to the model you are considering would be helpful.

    CPU = i7-980X @ 4.17Ghz 144x29 cooled by custom Loop
    Mem = 12GB 2000Mhz corsair Dominator GT at 2010Mhz @ 9-10-9-27-2T
    MB = Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 v1.0 with F6 Bios - Dead Board
    MB = EVGA X58 Classified3 e770
    GPU = 2x Sapphire r9 290x in xfire
    HD = 2x Toshiba 120GB Raid 0 (580MB Read/140MB Write)
    Storage = 2TB WD Black
    PSU = EVGA SuperNOVA 1300w
    Case = Cooler Master HAF-X 945

    HTPC / Home Server
    OS = Win7 64Bit running XBMC HTPC Front end with Windows Server 2011 Virtual Machine with 8GB ram assigned for homer server with exchange
    CPU = AMD 1090T
    Mem = 16GB 1600Mhz Kingston RED Limited Edition running at 1600Mhz
    MB = Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5
    GPU- EVGA GT210
    HD = too many to count, but about 5TB of storage all together including backup

    If you could go with EVGA then do it, I had problems with Gigabyte cards before and I never faced any with EVGA.
