here's the spiel with me:

i'd say MSI because my Gigabyte motherboard gave me the finger so i don't trust my money with gigabyte anymore.

i'd say Gigabyte because the only MSI product that i've used (GeForce 4 Ti 4400) also gave me the finger a month after i bought it.

So, i'd say neither. wait for the eVGA's to go back in stock.

good choice. I also recieved the finger from a gigabyte motherboard: twice. I have my MSI motherboard and am a happy camper. And that's how I feel about that.

hrmm already step 5 on new egg... so awesome.. and i just called ups and the teleprompter said they'll be delivering regular schedule on monday! so i'm very excited because i have school off!! i can't wait!

by the way... to the person above me... how is fear running for you with that 6800 gs... i'm very curious

now here's the better question now that i'm getting it soon... how would i install this??? uhh... just install the drivers then go to bios and change from onboard to the 6800gs??? or do i gotta uninstall the drivers for the onboard?
