  1. What exact models are you looking at to compare? There are several variants of the EVGA brand 6GB 1060 (not sure about Zotac). I will say this however: EVGA has much better customer support/service should you need it. Also EVGA's standard warranty is 3 years with a 5 year extended warranty option and Zotac's is 2 years with a 1 year extended warranty option.

    Both are the mini versions, the Evga one isnt the Sc version, its just the common one

    Btw customer service is completely a non-issue for me because i dont live in the Us or canada and it doesnt reach here

  3. Ah. Well both have the exact same core/boost speeds. With that said, I'd still choose the EVGA just based on their better backing of their products in support than Zotac*. They'll perform exactly the same however at stock speed. The question is if the Zotac or EVGA has the better cooling should you want to overclock. That I cannot tell because neither have been tested in any reviews I can find.

    *I'm speaking from the North American market. Not sure what your situation would be on warranty support with EVGA vs. Zotac in South America/Argentina. (Hola from the north!)

    Yes im from argentina :D, The zotac vendor says he gives 3 years warranty and he has 99% rating that backs him up so i dont think ill have much problems,
    ive compared the 2 on game debate and the only difference is that the evga has "poor" OC support and the zotac has "none" :/

    Well that's to be expected since these are the mini versions and do not have near the cooling capabilities of the full sized video cards. But hey, "poor" overclocking support is better than "zero" overclocking, right?
