B) BFG Geforce 7900 GT OC 256MB PCI-E w/ Dual DVI, HDTV-Out
C) eVGA e-GeForce 7900 GT CO 256MB PCI-E w/ Dual DVI, HDTV-Out
D) Gigabyte Geforce 7900 GT 256MB PCI-E GDDR3 w/ Dual DVI, HDTV-Out
E) MSI NX7900GT-T2D256E Geforce 7900 GT 256MB PCI-E w/ TV-Out, Dual DVI

eVGA. Lifetime warranty that allows overclocking and replacing the stock heatsink, great RMA process for the 7900s, Step-Up program, great customer service.

Well EVGA cards are Very Well made and dependable. The BFG has a very good warranty System as to which they Cover you changing Heatsinks on the card and the card being killed by an OC. Ive also heard very good things from XFX but if i were to go with any on that list it would be either EVGA or BFG.

I used to buy only PNYs but then switch to eVGA and now, I may consider an XFX or eVGA again, depends on which one will give me the higher clock speeds with the lowest price.

Another thing I tend to look at when I buy is reviews, accurate or not I tend to look for the key word; temperature. If a certain card gets too many complaints that it runs too hot, then I won't buy it, even if the price is right for the clock speed.

That's how I ended up with this eVGA 6800 GS, it idles @ 38c 500/1200, loaded I think it does 55c-60c.
