Default 6800 Ultra Brands

Which brand would be the best 6800 Ultra PCI-Express to buy. If you have a link to an article comparing them that would be great. If not, then why should I get the one you suggest?

Has the best heatsink out of the rest, and a reliable, trustworthy company.

My 6800 is a eVGA. I have to say, they're a great company. I mean, when you purchase, they send six french models over to your house for gratuitous sex as a bonus.

...What? It hasn't happened to anyone else?

Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...

eVGA, like they said, but BFG is pretty good too, but not AS good. You might want to wait a little, as eVGA are releasing (and maybe other companies) a 512MB version of the 6800 Ultra!

Good luck,

XS RULES!!! I have officially referred you.

Asus is the best Fan cooled.
There are water cooled ones but I forget who makes it. They also have SLI water cooled.

I'll SAFELY overclock it myself, but I think I'll go with eVGA in spite of all of your aswers.
