Default Graphics card manufacturer??

H, I am in the process of buying a new graphics card and have set my mind on the geforce 6800 gt (wanted ultra but too much) but I have heard that the performance of graphics cards is affected by who is the manufacturer?? I have also been told sparkle make the best geforce cards?? (Yet sparkle seem more rare than other makes) is this true and if so please can you recommended me the manufacturer I should buy?? All replies will be much appreciated, thank you.

The differences between the cards as far as stock performance goes, is pretty small. If you overclock, then yes, Leadtek will be a better one, due to the huge heatsink.

If you arent going to overclock, then get whatever has the best warrenty and has the best price.
