get the eVGA model. XFX cards are often DOA, allthough when they do work, they are very good overclockers.

eVGA for quality and step up program reasons,

Leadtek if you don't care about step up because leadtek has the best stock cooler, but if you're not gonna use stock then I guess it doesn't matter

ive got a gigabyte and its great. I got the version with the big heatsink and no fan but ive now changed that for a NV silencer and its really dropped my temps. down to 43C. so i think get either evga, gigabyte, msi or BFG and put a NV silencer on and your set.

like nubius said, evga has a step up program that allows u to pay the difference between ur card and a newer model. dont know if other companies do that
