Default What is the best brand for a 7800GT?

I'm in New Zealand, and no one seems to sell eVGa cards here, so that's why I'm asking which other brand is good to go for with the 7800GT core. The ones that I am considering are the XFX, Gigabyte, and Leadtek ones. What do you guys think?

MSI or Leadtek IMO, I have a MSI 6600GT and have had no problems at all. Leadtek is favored among users here as a secondry choice, though both brands are known for good quality.

So MSI and Leadtek would be good choices? Not XFX or Gigabyte?

Umm, eVGa cards aren't avaliable here. Please read the topic before you post.

Iv head bad things about XFX too,

Gigabyte are good very reliable brand but probably not the best overclockers but very stable.

MSI are really good for extras I got 3 games and software with mine.

if possible get BFG not sure if its available over there.

Id go with MSI
