Best Vendor for a 6990?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm buying a 6990 next week.

What is the best vendor in your opinion and why? I currently thinking of going for XFX.

My other choices are these...

Sapphire
Powercolor
Visiontek
Gigabyte
MSI
HIS

For those of you who own a 6990, what is the performance like? Is there any game out there that can't be maxed and still get close to 60FPS? What about eyefinity performance?

What about Asus, they seem to be the one most people feel comfortable dropping $700 on.

There doesn't seem to be any ASUS 6990 in Canada yet. The brands i mentioned above are my only choices. Normally i would go for Asus as it is what i have now and i'm very happy with it.

xfx imo......great warrantys on there products!!! i just recently bought a second 5850 off of craigslists to run in crossfire but found out the card was bad. I called xfx to see what they could do and because its a new card not older then two years they let me send it back even though I bought it second hand and could not register it no questions asked. since I was running crossfire I ended up getting two new 6950. there support staff was very quick to fix my propblem no hassle and very nice people.
