i recon the leadtek 6600GT is the best. that or the EVGA but either way, with both of them at the top, it would be something like this:

Asus/Aopen (actually a very nice card)
Gigabyte i think.. i could be wrong.

the good thing about a leadtek or EVGA is that they generally better quality cards, giving you more FPS at stock settings, and the ability to overclock further than their cheaper 'competitors'.

Evga hands down.

Leadtech.... i don't know, you love them or you hate them.

Giga-Byte's are solid, as are the MSI's.

Everyone says eVGA. XFX are nice cards, but because of a bad batch of DOA cards, nobody gets them because they fear them DOA.

XFX are the GPU's used for breaking the W/R due to being very good, if not the best overclockers.

I have a perfectly fine XFX first time out of the box.

I quite like Leadtech, I almost got one when getting my PC, but it was slightly more expensive.

Leadtek now put on HUGE heatsinks which is all copper.

eVGA are popular because of the trade in of old for new.
