Hey guys,

 

A friend of mine can get a 950gtx at a good price, however the brand is Galax. Is Galax a good brand? Personally I have not heard much about this brand but Ive heard from the store owners its a good brand. Thoughts? The card in question I have listed below:

The card has a two year warranty.

I haven't heard anything bad about them. They're the ones who make the HOF edition cards, which tend to be amazing.

Galax is one of the not that well known brands like PNY etc.

But they make the HOF (=Hall Of Fame) cards so they are a decent company. 9_9

Galax aka Galaxy in the US and KFA2 over in europe. 

I think I might've heard of that brand maybe once before seeing this topic.  Where can you buy this brand of GPUs in the US?

Have have many cases that the card catch on fire and refused to repair the card even it is due to defects, you can search for it, it is cheap but its quality is bad
