People at xtremesystem say to go for EVGA b/c XFX customer support sucks and you could add an after market cooler plus the step up program but I like XFX covers OC and has transferable warranty

XFX covers after market coolers and their customer support/rma department wasn't bad at all.

My card was water cooled when it died, they didn't care, just told me to put the stock cooler back on and send it in.

That must be a new policy for BFG becasue some time ago I bought two used 6800gt's and both were fubared and BFG replaced them both without a blink.

3- that is a great board, but it is 270 bucks, you can get a abit quad gt x38 for much less and get a wonderful board. (I would love** to have one of those, oh man DFI has such beautiful boards)
