Default Best GTX285....?

Title says it... I have a build coming up in which I am wanting to use one of these but I don't know which one to go with (Later I am going to SLI these)... I really like the EVGA but they have the Superclocked edition and the F.T.W. edition or just the regular card... any suggestions? Thanks in advance for any help...

I'd just get the lowest priced one from the reputable brands. (XFX, eVGA, BFG)

Here's why: well the 2GB one is highly overpriced, same with the pre-overclocked ones, since its quite easy to do it yourself with RivaTuner or nTune or eVGA Precision (or you could modify the BIOS of it)

My EVGA GTX 285 SSC is quite impressing. I'd recommend one - or TWO!?!?!?

EVGA, MSI, XFX, ASUS are all good card manufacturers imo.
