Default What Brand Gfx?

OK then, im in the process of getting an agp 6600GT, i can get an xpertvision for $260 AUD (dumbass computer shop guy said it had ddr2 uugghhh) & a XFX for $320 (i hear you all bag XFX so what is bad about them?)

What i want to know is have anyone had experience with an xpertvision card & are they reliable? or should i save up & get the XFX as the shop uy said its "higher quality"

PS: I don't want any newegg links or "Get the 6800GS" slander, just experiences with either of these brands & some advice.

XFX is bad due to their quality in cards, and pretty much overheating problems and their wippy stock heatsink fans lol.

Try to get a leadtek, gigabyte, MSI, BFG if it isnt too expensive. I think wayne bought an xpertvision you can PM him though he's on vacation i believe till the 12th

do they have eVGA in aus?

eVGA, BFG, PNY are my favs. Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI are not far behind. XFX is... last.
