The 6800 performs great, although ATI's new x800 might be a little faster and even $100 cheaper when it comes out. PNY is also a good brand name, but with certain cards I've heard of problems with the refresh rate, but they all seem like they could be easily corrected with PowerStrip.

Pny is okay. I would look at the other ones out and just find the one with the best fan setup. I would go nvidia because i heard about the pixel shader 3.0 and the direct x 9.0 that atis card doesnt support. And if need be you can overclock the nvidia the "slight" difference between the 2.
