Default Gigabyte x800 pro or ATI x800 pro?

Is the gigabyte version of the x800 pro any good? Not doing any overclocking, and I can get it for $15 cheaper than the ATI version. Anyone know which is of higher quality?

Well, can we see the ads and specs for the two?

I don't think there is much of a difference really, so go with which one looks better to you for the money

Zeed, the asus card is about $70 more, and I don't need all those extra doo-dads.

Just choose the cheaper 1.
Usually if using same GPU, which company made it makes no difference especially all those good company.
Try c which 1 bundle with more softwares n accessories.
