I'd personally go for either evga/xfx/bfg mainly because of the great warranties backing up their product. You never know when it can go out, especially with computer hardware. I looked through the site and noticed this card which is an XFX with a Zalman cooler. Price can be $139.99 if the rebate is accepted. We all know the pain with rebates sometimes.
PROS: Zalman seems to know what they are doing when it comes to Heatsinks/fans. If that isn't the case, EVGA's warranty is there to back it up.
CONS: Fans can get pretty dirty or clogged therefore causing an increase in temps. Maintenance can go a long way.
Hope I've been helpful.
