Overclockers Choice Awards - 1st Half 2011

Add Your Comments

Lend us your voice Overclockers! Vote to select the best components currently available for Overclockers in 2011, and we’ll publish the results on June 1st, 2011. Overclockers Choice is awarded to the best of the best by you, the Overclockers community members. Of course, the definition of best is open for you to interpret as you please. In the results, we all will be able to evaluate our opinions on performance, features, and value!

Poll options were nominated by our forum members in the open nomination discussions. The ground rules for nominations were the components must currently be in production or available in major retail outlets. There’s clearly no room for eMachines here, now its up to our readers to decide who takes home the crown for each category.

EDIT: Polls are now closed. Check back June 1st to see the results!

  1. I had like four cards from ati before i switched to gtx 570 and they were great nothing against ati/amd hardware, but their drivers ruined my life, there were times when i had to reinstall OS to get them working correctly, and forcing AA for specific programs was nightmare, nvidia's drivers are perfection, simple, clear, and work like advertised, plus im single monitor gamer so ill take 320 bit bus with less memory vs 256 bit 2GB memory.

    AMD and ATI are the best. 6990 is a monster, the nVidia 590 is a droopy eyed armless child. :)


    fanboy alert ;) i love amd and ati but i have to say nvidia keep doing them out right fair and sqaure in gpus, the 590 is faster in most tests and doesn't sound like a hairdryer.
    Nominations were open months ago. No one nominated the 590.

    We go by nominations, otherwise we could just pick all the highest numbers or the best benchmark scores. Nominations and votes will determine what people think are the best choices. :)
    Incentive for new members ;) I'd bet you some people have registered just to comment on articles... I'd think they would anyway, if we had a really popular one.

    If you just did the voting in the forums it would be more accurate. If a non member wants or vote or comment, they can simply join. I wonder if you could tie the vBB poll into wordpress somehow.


    Many people won't register, more people will vote if it doesn't require registration. :)

    If you leave the default choice, it doesn't count for anything. Let me know which ones you would vote nothing on, and we can adjust for it when we tabulate the final scores. :thup:

    The options are a result of the nominations we held last month, and some things aren't there because they aren't in production/commonly available in retail.
    Voted.

    But I think you need to include a "None of the above" choice in each category too, as with some of the choices the one I like best wasn't included in the choices.
