Question X800Pro

I'm going to buy a X800Pro within the next few months. I wanted to know if I should buy the card from Sapphire, ASUS, Gigabite, Visiontek, etc., or if I should buy one from ATI. Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks.

I think sticking with the ATI version is best. Its usually one of the cheaper versions too.

Well, the point above is true, but the other manufactorers have some excellent looking heatsink/fan combos So if you like that then just look among the well known brand and pick one that looks the best

Well, where I'm probably going to buy from the cards are made from Visiontek and ATI and are both at 400 dollars.

Visiontek X800Pro
ATI X800Pro

These prices are way better than Newegg's.
