Question nVidia GeForce 6800 XT?

What producer would people reccomend for the nVidia GeForce 6800 XT? XFX, evga???

And What do people think about it in general? Is it a good card to go for the SLI???

If you had to pick go for the eVGA one,

But Id rather get a X1800XT or 7900 GT instead of SLI'ing the 6800 XT's

IMHO

2 6800xt's are 200 and a 7900gt is 300 so thats out of his price range. get a 7600gt, that card will give you good performance

ok, many of you say that eVGA is better, but why does the XFX version have a heatsink covering basically the whole card? Wouldn't the XFX version of the 6800 XT be better than????
