Since all are the best brands of nVidia cards, just get the cheapest one (the last one)

Like Verong said, they are the best brands for NVidia cards, and go with the cheapest one.

XFX. It's cheaper, and it's an amazing brand.

XFX all the way If I had the money I'd have my entire comp built with XFX - I know they do PSUs and cases now :P

I wonder how awesome an XFX heatsink would look?
