Nobody has mentioned Diamond, what's the word on them?

I have two Sapphires that have never let me down.

Sapphire and HIS are the 2 I have experience with. Both have been flawless.

Sapphire aren't quality in my experience... two Sapphire X1950Pro cards literally melted inside my friends computer with there stock coolers and no over clock... Were older cards.. maybe just a old time mistake

The only companies I have experience with are Sapphire, GeCube, HIS, Visiontek, and Diamond (well, ATI themselves - but that was an ATI Rage Orion card, and so long ago that I don't think it's really fair to include them).

I've been reasonably happy with all of them - the only ones I've had to contact for customer support were Sapphire and GeCube, and both experiences were reasonably pain-free.

Wow, how can you get X1950Pro's to run hot :/ With my Asus original cooler my card idle'd at 38 and loaded at 45 when it was clocked at 645/1620 and now on water it idles at 26 and loads at 39


And I'd have to say asus, best OC's and best coolers usually..

Aww, no one really mentioned Diamond. I'm using Diamond HD3870 in crossfire and so far they have been A+. Haven't tried overclocking them yet though and I have no idea what their RMA is like, and hopefully I'll never have to know

I like Powercolor ATI cards, Sapphire is ok too, but for some reason I prefer the PowerColor ones

I always liked the coolers that Powercolor put on their cards for some reason. The new PCS cards are nice as well
