As good as the other brands XFX, eVGA, etc ...

Please let me know for a purchase may come SOON.

And does MSI come with a good bundle?? for OCing?

It looks like a lite version. So it doesn't come with much... One thing to check out is the warranty on it. Thats why I got EVGA Lifetime warranty.

All the overclocking software you want, you can download for Guru3d.com. I wouldn't use anything that came with any graphics card. As for which brand to get, I'd grab the best price and/or warranty I could find.

Had bad experiences with MSI myself. Built a system for a friend and the 7800gt was DOA.

I had a 6600 GT which I regret selling it but it was too late.........

Got a 6800 GS, by eVGA because of the Lifetime Warranty and checked a couple of reveiws at newegg and saw what I exactly wanted to see, except this is my first purchase ever on an nVidia card not being a PNY.

I saw reports on the card running cool......check!
I saw it overclock a little more than I expected it....check!

It's been in my system for no more than 1 hour and I like that it's running at 490/1100 stock overclock and only 37c idle. I will try the auto overclocking later and the highest possible I can go but right now I'm gonna let that paste settle a bit.

In the meantime........eVGA or XFX which ever of those may suit your needs, right now I'm liking this eVGA 6800 GS.

**Edit**

Just tried the "optimal freq" and it went all the way upto 533/1180, temps only went from 37c to 39c......still playing with it.
