Default What Graphics Card?

Ok now i'm upgradin my currrent computer (in my sig) and i'm goin to go with a X1800GTO. Theres two i was lookin at and idk which one to go with. Heres the links to the two cards:
HIS Radeon X1800GTO

and

Connect3D Radeon X1800GTO

What are good brands for ATI cards and does it really matter between those two cards?

I did some more reading, go with the HIS card, it can be unlocked to 16 pipes.

I would go with HIS, but if you can find the ATI brand one i would go with ATI.

Ok thanks for the suggestions. I'll probably end up goin with the HIS Radeon X1800GTO IceQ3 Turbo MrZucchiniHead suggested since its only $5 more and it has a higher core clock and better cooling
