Default Brand for 9800 Pro

I finally decided to get rid of my 9600 XT and get 9800 Pro.

Which brand should i go with?

Ati itself or saphire, gygabite, asus, powercolor, high tech.

I prefer ATI but i have heard about some heat problems cuz their heat sink is pretty small.

saphire would be my pick, but not right now, wait until the newer cards come out, then you can get one.

If you can afford em, ASUS makes one hell of a video card.

If i had money to just throw away guess id pick a Crucial.The fan and heat sink look like stocker's but the memory is GDDR2 guess thats DDR2.
