Default more 9800 questions.....need to order this card tomarrow! HELP PLEASE!!!

ok.....which is better this http://www.futurepowerpc.com/scripts...8-C3O&REFID=PW the ATi....or the MSI version at newegg http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...127-127&DEPA=0 the MSI version seems like it would run cooler and last longer and OC better cuz of the gigantic heatsink. but i dont know if its comparable to the actually ATi version. please help me!!! (the 6 dollar differnce doesnt matter to me)

DEFINATELY get the MSI.....it actually has a 9800 xt core....and is recognized as a 9800 xt in all programs

it has a good heatsink/fan and can be easily overclocked or flashed to be a 9800 xt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i am actually buying this next week......my friend has the same one
