Which Brand GPU for 2080 Super?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I basically am trying to figure out which GPU brand I want so once it is able to be added to cart, I can buy it before someone else does. My motherboard is Gigabyte Aorus Master, so I was thinking of getting Gigabyte RTX 2080 Super Aorus with LED fans. Would prefer the gpu matches the mobo. Just not entirely sure how well Gigabyte cards are made as this mobo is my first item i've ever purchased from them. Was also considering an EVGA dual fan also.

 

Just want something that is going to be reliable, company that honors their warranty, and not too high of temps. What do you think?

I've never dealt with Gigabyte on the RMA front, but their customer service is responsive to questions, if not a tad slow.

As far as I'm concerned, nobody is going to best EVGA unless they start including home delivery of chic-fil-a with top-tier warranty service. I've never had an issue EVGA wasn't ready and willing to resolve as fast as they can (in some cases, receiving a reply and starting the RMA process in a matter of just a few hours.)

I've heard nothing but good things about them. One reason I buy their PSU's. Will consider this when making my final decision, thanks :)

Intel bashing aside, the Z390 Aorus Master is a fine board. Aorus 2080 Super is a good card too.

they try find reasons to deny RMA claims, they all do except EVGA. Just dont give them a reason to catch you.

I had the best experience with EVGA for both GPUs and PSUs, so I can recommend them.

Didn't exactly have any bad experiences with other brands, since I never owned another brand and had to RMA it.
