Default ATI or ASUS?

I'm going to be getting a 9800 XT, but the problem is which company to go by.. I've checked a ton of benchmarks from websites, would seem ASUS is getting slightly noticable higher markings than ATI, but at the cost of an extra 30 bucks... Both companies seem quite reliable, we all know ASUS is, anyways, I just wanted a public opinion, which card should i get, the ATI 9800XT or the ASUS 9800 XT? Thanks all

both are good no reason to fret. i have a asus 9600xt card been happy with it. Either way your good. ATi is the company that made the first raidons so just go with what you desire.
ps-benchmarks arn't everything

You didn't say for what use, but as XT told,
benchmarks dont tells your need.

Both are great cards...top of the line. The difference is that the asus has full VIVO (like the All in Wonder), and doesn't use ATI's reference design for cooling.

OC'ing of this card, is said to be not as good as the ATI version.
