Default Msi 7800gt

Hey guys i've been wanting to get an eVGA 7800GT for a while, and i'm hoping to order it in the next week or so, but i went to newegg, and they're sold out! The only eVGA one left it the rip-off one for $379, so i'm looking for an alternative. I saw this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127194
and it has good reviews, so i'm contemplating whether i should get it or not. MSI isn't quite as reputable as eVGA, so if any of you have this card or any other MSI card, please give me a review. Thanks.

I don't remember hearing anything bad about them Plus it comes with a game . Why not try a site other than newegg though, if you'd rather an evga?

I had a 6600GT from MSI. It was a very good board and came bundled with alot of software. I would wait for the eVGA's though if you can. If you can't you should be happy with the MSI board.
