Dont worry about Nubius, theres nothing wrong with the Sparkle.. the eVGA arent available easily in Australia.. Sparkle is kinda the subsitute.. its honestly not bad.. if u check out benches between the brands you'll see.

Fudo does support Pixel Shader 3, which will be released before PS 3.0 becomes a bottleneck factor.

Don't get XFX, get eVGA..its the easiest to overclock and performs better.
