Although "Best" is a subjective term, certain ones have their strengths. My go-to card would be the Asus. If you have the cash and space to spare the triple slot Direct CuII version Asus makes is pretty insane with it's huge cooler and Eyefinity 6 support. They overclock nicely too. Then again if you're one to be concerned, XFX brand 6970s come with a Double Lifetime Warranty. Nice added security and can contribute to a higher resale value down the road if you part ways with your card. In the end, just go with a reputable company and do your homework and find the card that suits your specific needs the most.

There's a new MSI 6970, forget the model atm, but it's got like 24 phase power regulation, pwnzrs. But it comes with a price tag fitting of that, however the 69xx cards aren't known for blowing their vrms so it's a bit of excess for the sake of it.

+1 why I went w/ the MSI for cooler design, though I got a 6950. I'm sure the 6970 is even more bad ass
