Default Which 6800gt to get?

I'm looking to buy a 6800gt PCI-E (SLI compatible) and don't know which to get.

I know alot of people like Evga, but we don't have that in the UK and most places won't ship to England... But going down that road would kinda be risky anyway?

Here's the list of 6800gts available:

Gigabyte GeForce 6800 GT
Leadtek WinFast GeForce 6800 GT
OcUK GeForce 6800 GT (Seems rare, not good if I wanna add another one on SLI)
XFX GeForce 6800 GT
Inno 3D Geforce 6800GT (Kinda rare again)

They all share the same specs (according to that page,) what makes one brand superior?

Quality control is what makes one brand superior, and they as well can have slightly different specs.

Leaktek is high quality and good cooling so go for it.

I've read just read two reviews for the Leadtek one stated two in SLI will fit in all motherboards but the second review said it wouldn't fit on a GA-K8NXP-SLI (the board I hope to be getting.) Anyone know if this is true?

So SLI Leadteks won't fit on my board so I guess it's between

Gigabyte GeForce 6800 GT

or

XFX GeForce 6800 GT

Unless anyone knows where I can get a EVGA from?

Well I've managed to get hold of a Evga 6800gt (even with delivery it works out cheaper than all ones avaliable in UK,) it is the best 6800 gt out there yeah? Well anyhow it's PCI-E but on the detials there's no mention of it being SLI compatible, so is it?
