sapphire is good for customer support. as well as the bonus thing's they come with.

Combine the usual lowest price of the vendors with the extra goodies u recive make sapphire a VERY good deal. as well as good support.

XFX is same story. usually a bit more pricey.

HIS has soem extra goodie's as well.

MSI is amazing with Cooling.

I would avoid XFX at all costs. Asus, MSI, Sapphire, and Visiontek are all great though.

MSI has three year serial based warranty.
Higher resale value and for convenience in general.

Visiontek has non-existant customer service.

XFX has proven time and time again for this great customer service.

If you can't find ASUS then Gigabyte or Sapphire.
