I think that XFX and Evga are the best brands. BFG is probably next, with MSI and the others coming in later.
brands I would not get: PNY or 3DFusion. (3d fusion is bfg cards that couldn't cut it at bfg specs.)
evga, xfx and bfg all offer lifetime warranties. evga has great customer service and I have heard good things about bfg. i'm not sure about xfx.
evga has a step up program where within 90 days you can upgrade your card paying just the difference.
Also, some manufacters do different things to the cards, like change the pcb color, put a better cooler on and/or oc.
evga, bfg and xfx all oc cards from the factory.
I think the evga 7800gtx ko is probably the best. it has better cooling than most gtx's and it is still only a single slot solution. Also, it has some of the highest clocks.
