Guys, Rahul at theitwares.com has bad experience with selling MSI brand Graphic card and he got back many MSI GPU for RMA whereas very little RMA from Sapphire Brand. and MSI has very bad after sales support.

whereas, the guy at smcinternational.in tells that he prefers MSI graphic card and is trusted brand, MSI has very good after sales service, they even replace the card with new one , whereas Sapphire brand generally replace the RMA card with Old card .

I had similar experience with Sapphire, they replaced my new HD 4670 with old model HD 4670. So, i am little bias to MSI Brand.

But I still want opinions of Expert Guys, who can prefer me which brand is good in after sales service and doesnt get fault quickly.

Both are preferred brands but msi twin frozr III cards are a notch above the sapphire toxic cards.

I think they are unmatched. Just check out msi gtx 580 lightning , 6970 lightning, gtx 560 twin frozr III , 6950 twin frozr III Power edition and you'll know what i'm talking about.

So my vote goes to MSI.

Why not Zotac??

SMC are buddy buddy with few brands, MSI gpu lineup being one of them. People are picking up msi partially because of being promoted and sold easily (atleast in Delhi AFAIS).

MSI for non reference cards, zotac has a few and all use reference pcb, msi cards have custom pcb(hawk, lightning) and oc's better and stays cooler, my lightning never crossed 70c with mafia 2, my friend's zotac gtx580 reaches close to 80c with reference fan profile.

In my locality 9600GT cards are the high - end cards. Store owners brag about these as they are High end cards and can run any games in any settings.. LOL..

So, No local support, I have to either Ship it from Delhi or Mumbai :) Thanks 4 reply.

MSI has 3 years warranty, sapphire has 2 yrs parts and 1 year labor, but it always works out to be 2 yrs.

But Tkin, in all the web sites like lynx-india, smcinternational, anythinginit, theitwares, warranty of Sapphire cards are mentioned as 3 years...no mention of 2 years warranty and 1 year labor only warranty.
Also during the RMA process of my Sapphire card from M.D. computers, they also told me it contains warranty of three years.
