Default Best graphic card?!?!?

I read many reviews and as of now the Geforce 7800GTX 512mb is the king of the hill. Now: What manufacturer that makes this card is the best?

Msi:

BFG:

XFX:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814150119

eVGA:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?EdpNo=1648399

Which one???
They all cost bacically the same, and come with games etc. I was thinking XFX, but then again I heard bad things about XFX...

In order imo?

1) eVGA
2) BFG
3) MSI
4) xfx (ewww)



And yes, if you hear bad things about something, it's generally a good idea to pass on it

What power supply should go with it? I was thinking Antec truepower 550W? I'm "only" going to get one card, that means im already broke... Do you guys think I should get another one even more powerful? No right, because i already bought it. And in one test of a 512mb 7800gtx they had a cheap 450W PSU and it ran perfectly they said.

The card requires two slots it says. But it doesn't need two slots (not SLI). I dont have two PCI-E slots!! I have another slot next to it that's free and not used. Is that going to work? The card should clear that slot when it sits in the one PCI-E slot. I think it's an older slot, like PCI or something. They just mean that the slot next to it (whatever it is, PCI, AGP, PCI-E) should be free to use for space right? I'm buying this card because i do not have two PCI-E slots but now I'm starting to worry....
