I have had over 15 XFX cards and would never really consider another manufacturer until I see prrof for myself of these fabled issues with quality.
I've had five (2 x HD5770's, 1 x HD6870, and 2 x R7950's) and have had a HD5770 die within a few months and had to return both 7950's, one which died within 12 hours and another within a couple of days due to the current fault.
That says a lot concerning quality to me. At least my HD6870 is still going, for now.
And currently, here, they're the cheapest brand for the R7950 brand new. I won't be buying anymore products from them again though.
