  I am buying a 7950 card and want to know if there is much of a difference between the brands such as Leadtek, Gigabye, Evga etc.
I can't seem to find any comparisons on a Google search.

some manufacture's like XFX, BFG, and Evga offer cards that are overclocked in the factory (the only 7950gx2 i seen overclocked are from XFX), also the warrantys vary from manufacture to manufacture XFX and BFG offer lifetime warrantys were others only offer 1-3 year.

they are pre overclocked and still covered by the manufacture warranty so they would be faster than a stock card. so if you get the XFX PVT71UZDD9 it has faster clock speeds than a normal 7950gx2 the standard clocks are gpu=500mhz and Mem=1200mhz and the XFX PVT71UZDD9 has gpu=550mhz and mem=1550 and the card still carries a lifetime warranty. It may also not be considered real overclocking where its shipped by the manufacture with the higher timings and normal overclocking would void the warranty.
