Default Good graphics card?

I was reading in another thread that its not always good to buy from compainies such as Sapphire and Visiontek. I was planning on buying the following card but those statements made me have a second thought. However, it is much more expensive to get a card directly from ATI. It this a good buy I am getting

* Memory Clock: 450MHz (900MHz GDDR-3)

* Dual 400MHz DACs
