Just as long as you don't buy a generic card, you should be ok. It's just people's own person preference towards a brand that makes them recommend it. All cards have cons and pros, but some card's cons get exploited and mentioned more than other card's cons.

Here are the ones most recommended on forums that I read regularly; BFG, eVGA and XFX and not necessarily in that order.

All of them have a lifetime warranty.

eVGA has 24/7 tech support, also.

Leadtech, Rosewill and PNY are ones that people don't seem to recommend.

- COOLER MASTER Wave Master TAC-T01-E1C Silver Case
- DFI LanpartyUT nF4 Ultra-D (BIOS = latest)
- AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Toledo 1GHz HT 2 x 1MB L2 Cache
- OCZ 2GB (2 X 1024) DDR (500) PC-4000 EL Gold Gamer Ext. XTC (OCZ5002048ELGEGXT-K)
- OCZ PowerStream OCZ520ADJSLI ATX, BTX, EPS12V 520W
- XFX Geforce 7900 GTX 512MB (665/1630)

My BFG 6600GT is amazing, customer service is amazing, their RMA covers problems that aren't even caused by their cards, like lets say your power supply sucks and burns out their card, they'll send you a new one.
