Congrats man. Was it a sweepstakes or did you win some tournament or something.? Either ways, it's a kickass rig. I was wondering howcome you got 3 rigs in ur sig, but now I know.
I actually only have the one in my sig, but I technically have 4 computers.
I didn't win myself, it was my fiance. She volunteered many hours since she wasn't able to get a spot and wound up winning the board and CPU. I am using it because she doesn't need anything more than my old i5 since she doesn't game on the PC.
I've always had AMD cpu's and Nvidia cards. As far as everything else, I am not overly picky.
You guys see a trend here with EVGA cards? And this is why they don't do reviews nowadays, only with certain sites. They say "people know us, why spend money on samples if its not required", though I'd think if there would be more reviews out there, not just by those that are EVGA fans or EVGA knows will put out good reviews, then the lookout for the company would be different. Just my thoughts on the whole EVGA thing. Won't say what or how I know. I'm just going to leave it at knowing people at EVGA and their honest opinions about their quality, and marketing. You'd be shocked by the amount of things they bypass just to save on cost. ;)
People have to realize every company cuts corners to make a profit as it's the name of the game. If you can successfully make a product that doesn't die in 3-5 years under normal use for normal customers while making money then kudos. My 465 lasted 225MHz OC on the core under stock cooling for 3 years while hitting 90c a lot during gaming sessions. Good enough for me. Probably still running in that assholes rig that stole it from me.
I would say they are right in thinking their name is out there enough, but wrong for thinking they couldn't use any extra PR.

I'm glad my misfortunes humor you.
Aww I'm sorry that happened! Hopefully karma kicks his ass.
