Yeah, um... I disagree.

eVGA, BFG, Leadtek, MSI, Asus, Gigabyte, (everything else), XFX.

XFX is a bargain bin card. They use shotty components and work about half of the time. Sometimes it's flawless, but a lot of the time it's dead, or dying.

shotty components eh? yeaaa uhh i disagree....and so do 500 people on Newegg...where do you get this info? Looks like the 6600 series has some bad reviews about the fans, but anything above that is all good.

Actualy take that from everybody around here asking for help on their XFX cards. Leadtek is better than BFG though. eVGA, Leadtek, BFG in that order becasue Leadtek is generaly cheaper. BFG has great warranty but lacks in the penny saving department and usualy ppl fall for the cheap OC trick.

eVGA makes really good graphics cards, but the 6800GS I got off of Newegg from eVGA was missing the 6-pin PCI-E power cable it said was inside the box. Not surprisingly, after reading other new reviews of people having the same problem, the product was removed from Newegg. At least the incoming PSU will have one built-in.

By the way, FghtinIrshNvrDi, grats on 1337 posts!
