Between XFX, HIS, and PC I would go with HIS or PC. XFX is really slipping up these days.

You can not go wrong with HIS, XFX, MSI or Sapphire Take your pick

I like powercolor personally out of those three.

If you plan to Use MSi afterburner Sapphire card wont work with it because is a custom PCB ONly MSi and Reference PCb cards work with MSi Afterburner Since msi afterburner isnt capable unlocking voltages for a card it doesnt know

MSi makes amazing cards (but not so for mobos). Asus, Gigabyte, XFX, and Sapphire are also top notch AMD card makers.

SAPPHIRE 100314-3L Radeon HD 6870 1GB $179.99 w/free shipping after MIR $159.99. Right now also a $10 promo code until 10/31 bottom line $149.99.

Sapphire for AMD is king IMO.

I tried MSI TwinFrozrII as my first departure from Sapphire myself. The Twinfrozr II line is great cooling. I was impressed and would be the only MSI cards next to Lightning I'd consider over Sapphire.

MSI R6870 Twin Frozr II Radeon HD 6870 1GB $194.99 w/free shipping, after MIR $159.99 plus you get a free Dirt 3 game!

If you think about the value with the game included (if your interested in the game in the first place) it's really a $119.99 deal!

Good luck in your decison makig process. It can be daunting and difficult but at the end of the purchase sitting in your rig, your going to be happy. Enjoy.
