The brand isn't entirely bad as a whole just that they had some horribly designed cards...namely the AMP! series of GTX1000 series cards. Might want to share a couple of Zotac cards you're looking at. The prices can and will vary depending on region,. mind you.
In out old PCs ( from my son and me) we had Zotac 1080 mini and Zotac 1080ti mini -----> no problem.
In current PCs ( since Jan. 2020) we had Zotac 2080 Super amp extreme, and neither my son nor myself did have any problem.
Since about 1 1/2 month we have ASUS tuf 3080 10G OC V2. Why did we not decide again for Zotac? Because after checking lot of tests we came to know, that the cooler-design of our 3080-cards is superior to Zotac's.
