I am an EVGA fan, so I am going to say EVGA. Even though the XFX is clocked higher, I feel that EVGA puts out quality, stable components, and their lifetime warranty is next to none. It even covers overclocking, so you can put it past 1550mhz, and not have to worrry about it frying and you being out 150 bucks.

Nice order . I am hoping to get a G5 mouse from my mother for christmas, but it is unlikely. I just won an ATI X1900 AIW from a forum though, so I am set in the video card department.

I had a tube of as5 lying around, I hope I can find it before I rebuild my computer tomorrow.

It is not my place, so I am not spamming the link.

They are running a contest for a G11 keyboard this month, and it is a great forum.

I got lucky, I have never owned a graphics card, I have been onboard since day 1, so having a NICE card is a real treat. Now I just gotta get the rest of my computer up to specs.
