Ah, seems that XFX one is the most expensive one I can find - this one, for example, is only £110. ~£140 seems the average though.

XFX are expensive for a very good reason. They are preferred over the other manufactures. They use better coolers and have the best warranties.

EVGA is competing fairly well for my favorite GPU manufacturer as of late, but XFX is still kind in my book.

That won't happen. Nvidia can't win on price against RV770 with G200; G200 is just a much bigger die, and is significantly more expensive to make.
AMD can afford to have their prices lower than Nvidia's cards.

Basically, Nvidia needs a new, smaller and/or faster GPU to remain cost competitive.

If you've used a recent ATI driver you wouldn't say that.
Ever since AMD acquired ATI, their drivers have gotten far better.

I don't think they are better. AMD just sometimes put the fan speeds lower than they could have.

And besides the after market vga coolers tend to support both, so it evens out anyways.

Yeah but XFX is the only ATI card manufacturer that covers GPU fan replacement in their warranties.
