Update: I have OCed my memory up to 790 MHz, and I am posting how this was accomplished in the ATI section. Good luck on the buy! From what I read, the Powercolor A2 cooler's exhaust is pointed towards the motherboard, and I have read reviews stating that this led to system temps rising 5C, however, this didn't affect the said PCs performence. Just a thought. I was in the exact same boat that you were when I RMAd my Sapphire model. I was turned off to the Powercolor for this reason, and the other being the lower clocks on core and memory (can be fixed easily, though)
Also, the VRM heatsinks on the Powercolor aren't as nice as the HIS, here are pics of the HIS sinks. They are seperate for the memory, VRM, and cooler to prevent heat bleeding between components.



As you can see, these are some quality sinks. I idle at 36C and at load I never exceed 60C (ATI Tray Tools artifact scanner), but when playing BF2142 I really stay around 45C.

Another thing to consider is the fact that you really don't need 512Mb unless you run really high-res, which I don't. I was going to get the 512 Mb model myself, but someone told me this, and then I read the benches comparing the two: they are pretty much the same score.

I would go for a Powercolour...Nice brand and generally good overclocks.

On the high res thing I am getting a 19" widescreen for xmas, why I was looking into a better gfx card, and since lcd's run best at there native resolution I was focusing on 512mb buffer for that very reason. I have an older Powercolor 9550 good card for what i use for (older pIII system I keep at my grandmothers for family to use when visiting) I also have a Connect3D card which is my main card for now. Anyways thanks for all the replies hope you all have Happy Holidays.

The VRM is in fact better on the HIS but the Powercolor does the same cooling solution as yours. The core section is copper while the rest is aluminum so no heat bleed is caused they are seperate it just doesnt look that way.
