AMD (cheeper with equal if not better performance)

ATI (9800XT > FX5950 Ultra)
Nvidia makes a nice card that can keep up with and ATI at baseline, but it can't keep up with ati on any level when AF and FSAA are turned on. If you want your games to look smooth and clean, ATI all the way

ASUS (Just always had one and liked them, never a problem)

if you know what you are doing and wont fry out your equiptment, go for it

"i thought u guys would have been a little more opinionated on this one"

This horse has already been beaten to death. you can search back through the threads. basically some like ati, some nvidia, some intel, some amd.

i am no lazier now than I was forty years ago, but that is because I reached the limit forty years ago. You can\'t go beyond possibility.
