AGP or PCIE??

PCIE than go for the Leadtek. If it is AGP than the only good one there is the XFX.

What did they say? The Leadteks are one of the best out there - and the PCIE one comes with a huge all copper heatsink.

The Leadtek - comes with this hugely nice heatsink and is cheaper. XFX has had some problems in the past with a bad batch of their GPU's but are alot better now, my 6800 works great, and XFX are used in the WR.

The first one is for the Vanila (standard 6800)

And the other one compares a Leadtek 6800gt to a gigabyte 6600gt.

The actual performance of the cards will all be the same unless they are pre-overclocked - BFG do this, but you can always overclock it more your self, and the Leadtek has a nice heatsink to keep it cool in the overclocks. The XFX as I said, have been used in the WR, so is known to overclock extremly well - they don't use conventional cooling, but dry ice, liquid nitrogen etc.
