i think LEADTEK is a bit better and eVGA is a close second, not sure.

yeah, either will be good...I have an evga and I like it....I know one dude in here was calling evga crap and swore by leadtek but that's not true....however...I remember who was it..pizzathehut got a leadtek 6800GT with that massive copper heatsink and it really didn't run that much cooler =/

Meh, whatever either one is good but I'll put my vote for evga
