You want Raw performance?
Sapphire Vapor-X or Toxic or an ASUS DirectCU.
End of story.

I don't know why people are talking about Vapor-X, since it doesn't exist in 6900 yet. Personally, I'd recommend the Twin Frozr II doh.gif

My Asus 4850 was a solid card, no issues what so ever, still have it as a back up.

What do you mean you have to pay to RMA ontop of shipping? I RMA'd my first 6850 due to my previous PSU killing it and while I did pay shipping, I did not pay anything on top or other then shipping.

If I had the choice to do again though I think I would have gone with the dual fan XFX, it was not released yet when I had bought my card, and they were sold out of the Gigabytes frown.gif

Asus makes quality parts on par with Sapphire and their warranty is traced through the serial number on the card...not a invoice... So it makes resale value much higher if you wish to sell it

Currently, in the 69xx area. It doesn't matter what card you get right now. They are all reference designs from AMD with a different sticker on it.

Once actual manufactured cards come out from the vendors, Sapphire/XFX are my choices. I've had both, but I'd pick Sapphire over any of them, then the XFX card.

I'm not saying the 'quality' of the card is bad on others, but as far as overclocking goes, or temps or construction of the cards, Sapphire has some pretty good build quality, and so does XFX.

To me, Asus is just bland and Visiontek is just cheap

Asus: 3 year warranty, warranty based on serial number, HUGE, and I mean XBOX HUGE manufacturer. Everyone knows how much crap Asus makes, so they probably provide decent support.

Sapphire: 2 year warranty, $15 RMA fee with no invoice/open box, much more limited market (GPU, some mobo, and other odds and ends). RMA is outsourced to Althon Micro.

XFX: lol. Don't waste your time buying that trash.

So out of the three: Asus is preferrable but there is nothing particularly wrong with Sapphire.

All cards are about the same in the eyes of performance the only big difference between them like other people said is packaged accessories (and dont flame me for this) and Warranty.

The reason XFX is more is because of their warranty, and as far as quality goes they They are identical, your chances of having a bum card or a card fry out are all equal between them.

Example: when i was building my 1090t rig i initially ordered 2 XFX 6950s and one was DOA, i got a replacement and then i found when in crossfire it looked like one card was rendering like off or something as i was getting weird overlays and tears. I borrowed one of my friends XFX 6950s that he was using in crossfire with no issues and i found one of my cards was just off or something, so i contacted NEWEGG told them what happened and sent them back and got Sapphire 6950s and now im running them in CFX with no issues.

On the other hand my brother ordered a Asus 6950 and it died in a week, they were out of stock at this point and they offerend to send a different model and he agreed and got a Gigabyte 6950 and hes running that with no issues.

All in all just get whatever card you think looks the best or comes with the best accessory package, personally would recommend Sapphire as their accessory package is beyond anyone else.
