Myself I praise Gigabyte; every single product I've bought from them (be it motherboards or video cards) has been top notch, with a lot of extras and amazing durability.
No eta, there have been some pictures thrown around the EVGA boards, but its definitely coming. Soon I would think. I just looks like a thick GT with a red (not blue) sticker.
That said, I'm not sure about other brands, but all GT cards that have gone out from EVGA recently have an updated cooler (with a bigger fan) and an updated bios, which has a much better fan profile. Reports are good, but it still isn't on par with a good 2 slot cooler.
