which X1900 XT brand should I go for?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
As the subject says.. I've seen (i believe)

Gigabyte
Asus
PowerColor
Sapphire
XpertVision

i dont know if I like ANY of them, maybe gigabyte or asus to match, im not sure if asus exists 100%, the others I am..

So can anyone suggest a brand, doesnt need to be in that list, that i should look at?

I want a standard x1900 XT as i may go crossfire, not sure, I only got 1280x1024 until I upgrade my 17" LCD so it might be able to pull it off at those resolutions, but I do want a bigger monitor but thats irrelivent for now

go the cheapest, they are all the same underneath the stickers and their own coolers, you can get your own cooling and do the clocking yourself so there is no need in getting a more expensive version. I can get a gecube for 885 bucks, dont know if that is any good but.

Forgot to mention the GeCube. I suppose one thing to look at may be length of warranty then, I know sapphire may be 1 year and gigabyte say 3 years, I would definately pay AU$100 more for 2 years extra warranty..even though I may not own the card by then, it does have better resell value with that.

Well I can get the GeCube fairly cheap and I've had good luck with my ex ex video card, the 9550 128mb.

Thanks for the advice, I did read somewhere that they are all the same, was wondering why I saw about AU$200 difference in price, and these were all the XTX versions.

Any more opinions would be appreciated...
