Lightbulb Which Manufacturer??

Got a question for you guys, Im purchasing a GeForce 6800 GT, but before I do. I want to know what manufacturer would yal go with. PNY, MSI, ASUS, XFX, or BFG. I'm looking at PNY, Msi, and Xfx. I no there is no difference with clockspeeds, but who do you guys trust? in the past I had nothing but trouble with Leadtek.

BFG's are awesome, and garanteed for life if it craps out (one year for the fan), but not if over-clocked.

Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43

BFG has a good reputation, especially with their stock overclock. They just seem to take more out of your wallet than most.

eVGA and Leadtek are the best

However BFG is good, because you can fry and replace, when a new video card comes out that you want.
