All the cards are pretty much the same. I heard Sapphire is bad with rebate/customer service.
Get one with some nice graphics on it.

The HIS comes packaged with a Screw Driver if your looking for extra goodies.

I like VisionTek, HIS and Asus for ATI cards.

at the moment the cards are all physically identical except for the Asus with the different cooler.

Personally I have a HIS 4850....never gone with them before but heard good things about service so wanted to give them a try. I've had powercolor and sapphire before as well and have nothing but good things to say.
