We've heard your thoughts on who makes the best motherboards, CPU coolers and chassis, now let's turn our attention to what can easily be the most expensive component in a new PC, the graphics card.

Remember, we're talking about the card itself, not necessarily the underlying GPU. Factors to consider include presentation, factory overclock, form factor, quality of components and cooling performance, to name but a few. And of course, it never does any harm to have a decent bundle to boot.

There are a dozen or so well-known players in the market - Asus, MSI, EVGA, et al - and each tends to have a signature design that remains familiar between generations. But who does a particularly good job? To help gauge public opinion, this week's question asks; which AIB makes the best graphics cards?

I mean the answer for this is the same as basically all the other QOTW like this. It depends on the specific model number more than it does the brand.

I would say for the case of AMD, Sapphire has always been rock solid though.
EVGA or Sapphire depending on Nvidia or GPU.

Now how long did it take to line up all of those GPUs? :p
They're all pretty good these days, tbh.
EVGA for NVidia cards due to their warranty remaining in-tact if you remove the stock cooler to replace with a waterblock.
Asus's Poseidon models are fabulous, however they always come out so late in the cycle that I cannot justify spending the premium they command, especially knowing that a new model is just around the corner.

AMD - Have owned relatively few brands compared to vs NVidia. Powercolour, MSI and Sapphire - Sapphire seem to be the best of that bunch, but only because of the their inclusion of legacy (DVI) port on their 480s, which were missing from the reference models.
Sapphire for AMD, and EVGA for Nvidia, followed by MSI. ASUS are just massively overpriced for both.
