eVGA....yay!

Post by Sovereign » Fri Jul 07, 2006 4:31 pm

Why I Love eVGA
- You can leave a message for tech/sales support so you don't have to wait on the phone forever.
- Their tech support people speak clean American English
- They will reprocess a botched RMA right away on the phone (one of my RMAs got cancelled due to a system error)
- They actually understand what you mean by "7900 series issue."
- They don't act all angry, mad or short and are professional and corteous.

In short: eVGA RULES!

Or the fact that evga doens't put stupid wizards/demons/scantly clad anime women on their boxes to convince idiots that thier product is awesome.

A plain clean box is what acatully attracted me to buy one of thier cards, for my last system build.

"Dat guy is teh awesomes, I am so gunna buy dat card cuz there is a uber guy on teh box!"

The worst box is the Leadtek 6600 GT with a wizard.

I think 3Dfx had the best boxes.

Got my new 7900s, have to run 3DMark06 to test though. They overnighted them for me. At no charge to me. Now that's customer service!
