Oh, what's wrong with getting the XFX version? To me they all have roughly the same spec, and I'm just going with XFX because I can get it slightly cheaper. I know that the cheaper price is probably shouting out why it's not as good as the eVGA version, but I'm talking of a price difference of £2 ($3-$4).

What about the BFG version, or the Leadteak, or Point Of View? I know some of their versions aren't as good as the XFX or eVGA (with mainly core clock speed and memory being lower than the other two), but what has everyone got against XFX?

BFG or Leadtek are fine.

XFX are low quality, both my XFX 6600GT's have had major issues, one caused random reboots, one shears like a )$(%$

There was a big batch of DOA XFX video cards at one point in time, and there are still a lot of DOA cards being made for no fracking reason.......
