I looked at monarch just last week and couldn't find any, and Newegg still doesn't have them. Well this is good, it's 30 dollars more then the suggested retail for the XT but hey, less noise and heat is worth it.

I know of GeCube, they make good cards. I've got a GeCube card, and out of date, 9600 Pro, but I've had no problems with it. If never heard of anyone having problems with them. Never heard of Diamond.

Yea i did some more research and HIS is to ATI like eVGA is to Nvidia. Looks like i chose a gooder! I just saw the massive HSF and fell in love w/ it and so i was like wait, better ask TF. Ill take yalls and Googles word for it and buy it! Thanx guys.
But yeah HIS is good so is saphire, and msi.
IMO Saphire sucks! My friend has had nothing but problems w/ any ATI Saphire cards hes bought. Youd figure he would learn his lesson.

i second that, Saphire always sell the cheapest cards out there so no doubt about thier quality

BTW is eVGA the counterpart to HIS? as i'm an ATI guy and i am going to go with a nVIDIA for my next build i would really like to get the best brand
