They are second tier retailer. They're alright. XFX is the only name in AMD I'd avoid.

I have never had a HIS, one of the few brands I haven't worked with. Sapphire is one of the most consistently good AMD partners and I would go that direction. I too view HIS as a second tier manufacturer, but never having one, I cannot personally account for their quality.

Edit: My personal AMD ranking would be:
1. Sapphire
2. MSI, Asus, Gigabyte.
3. XFX.
4. HIS, Power Color.
5. Vision Tek, Diamond.

This is just my personal opinion. Others may disagree, which is just fine. We all have our own preferences.

Not worth it when 280's are had for a fe bucks more and offter another gb of vram to work with, more bandwidth and a faster gpu core... In other words a good deal better gpu for $5-$20 more depending on model

A good choice. *See my previous post.

I would probably get the Gigabyte because it has free shipping. Newegg also has no tax and a Sapphire card and a MSI card for $200. You would save $20 or $30 using Newegg. Your choice of course.
