Meh, they're neck and neck. You have an SLi board, I'd get the 9800gtx and add a second one later.

You realize XFX doesn't actually make the products, right? All they do is order them from the same company every other mfg does, then get a box and slap their stickers on it...they warrant it too...

When buying a card from eVGA, BFG, XFX etc (except asus) your selection should be based on warranty, customer support etc.

EVGA would be my first choice...
They have an incredible step-up program in the first 90 days of ownership if you decide you want something else...Not to mention their RMA service is about the best in the business.

XFX would be my next choice - as they have the "Dounle-Lifetime" guarantee and transferable warranties. Though, their RMA service leaves something to be desired.

No, I can run a GTX with my PSU and it's 1/2 that.

Okay, well their double warranty system is good, but, they still haven't given my card back

Go with either eVGA or XFX. eVGA will let you buy the lower version, flash the bios to the ssc version (which does include any voltage increases that are bios based), and replace the cooler with an aftermarket one and it's still covered by warranty.

XFX will let you replace the aftermarket cooler and completely overclock the card to hell and back and I believe some people said that voltage mods are covered as well but they have lifetime protection for you and the 2nd owner of the card should you sell it.

XFX or eVGA. Both offer excellent warranties.

Wow. So ATI really needs to get their AIB partners to up their warranty to these levels.
