Asus,GeCube,HiS or anyother.Who and why?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hy!
I thought I lurked long before buying my video card but I found out a couple of days ago that the same version of ATI's Radeon X1550 made by GeCube was cheaper (about 20% less than the Asus X1550) and faster.For what vendors should I keep an eye out?I know from experience that Asus makes rock-solid (no,really;I've punched,kicked,dropped,burnt,smashed,cracked and done it all again to the case housing my motherboard and had no problems!)motherboards,but haven't really tested much video cards.I've had a GeCube X1550 but it was on AGP.It was nice though.What should I look out for when buying a new video card?What vendors,(I mean,these are called "vendors",no?My english is a little rusty)should I keep an eye out for?
Love&Peace!

I've owned HIS, GeCube and Sapphire and all were equally good.
Yiou really can't go wrong, if warranties are important then check out VisionTek, lifetime warranty.
