Get the Asus DirectCU 5850. I'm saying this from experience. You can oc the hell out of them. I have heard of a couple not ocing that well on these forums but most people get good cards. Look at my sig rig. I'm idling at 36C right now but my apartment is cool at the moment. In BC2, I go up to about 70C with this OC.

I agree, the Asus is best for ocing. If that's not something you're looking for, any 5850 might do.

Looks like I'm going with the ASUS..hopefully Amazon still has it when I'm ready to order.

I found this video last night ..looks like Asus changed the design on them?
