Id have to go with eVGA. They make solid, reliable cards. Not to mention their lifetime warranty.

Most of them are clocked to about the same. I personally recommend eVGA because of their unbeatable reliability. If you get one with the lifetime warranty, like the cyrax posted, you can pretty much do anything other than physically breaking the card and its still under warranty. eVGA also has great prices too.

I vote eVGA. I don't buy any cards that are nVidia without the eVGA brand. They're that good.
