Default Need help finding a GPU.

The one that I was planning on buying is deactivated (Newegg.com - XFX HD-687A-ZDFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity) so I need to pick a new one. I found these:
1. Newegg.com - MSI R6870 Twin Frozr II Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
2. Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-R687OC-1GD Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
3. Newegg.com - XFX HD-687A-ZHFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

I know XFX is a good brand, but I'm not sure about Gigabyte and MSI.
If you find any others then let me know.

id go with either the MSI or the XFX.... if you want a really good warranty, go with XFX, if you want a really good performing and quiet card, go with teh MSI or Gigabyte..

Does the second fan really make a big difference?

it literally doubles the air flow, and those fans are a lot quieter than the reference style blower fans.
