Default x800Xt - any good comments?!

I have recently ordered a new system with a x800XT card. It will be delivered next weekend. ( think it's an MSI based card)
I am now a bit worried after reading in a previous post of someone having probs with a x800XT ( heat issues )
has anyone got this card and are you happy with it.

if you are afraid of overheating issues, just make sure that your case has proper cooling.

sorry don't have one of these cards.

i will not recommend MSI's card at this stage, as MSI has entered into ATi's AIB's this year (though a bad strategic decision, after 6800 has launched).

go for some Asus card or who so ever has been builing for at least a year, in which Asus and ATi's own are of course should have to be on top list.
