HIS is a good one. Other good brands are Sapphire, ASUS, PowerColor, and obviously ATI itself. I think Sapphire often has decent prices, and their cards are good!

Beware with ebay. make sure the seller is reputable; read the fine print; and use a protected payment method (thus no money orders)

I'd advise against Ebay, you may be able to save a few bucks, but there is a high chance of you getting screwed over. I have *heard* alot of stories where when the item arrived, it was different from what they bid on.

I think you're better off with Newegg.

Yo Chozart..Maybe I should buy this instead of the PRO.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102067

Hey..Looking at this I dont have a PSU with the 6-pin power connector that the GPU needs..Chozart..Could you point out a good PSU for me..they're so many and a huge price range.

Or I could Use this..Which I dont know if the cards really getting enough power or not to run at fullest or if it'll effect my overclocking..but it might be an option until I get a new case and PSU.

Would make it a lot easier to people if you ran up a mini spec of what you were thinking about and stuck it in the first post updating it when you can - I'm not sure I'm up to going through all these posts!

That adapter will work, but I have to wonder if your PSU is powerful enough...
