well people say that the best is eVGA but you can only get them in the US and im assuming your in the UK ....

Not sure about the rest of them, i went with BFG because it comes slightly overclocked and it has a lifetime warranty which i thought was pretty good.

I was told to stay clear of XFX cards lol.

Look at an EVGA 6600GT or 6800GT
One is medium peformance and one is high peformance. Both of them support dual monitors.
