Ok. i am looking to buy a 5770. Which would be a better deal based on brands. I see alot of hype about xfx, sapphire, and others. Which is a good one to go with. These are the cards im looking at:
sapphire http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102864
xfx http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150447
Diamond http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814103086
Sapphire http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102858
HIS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161310

so seeing how they are about the same price, which one would be the recommended buy in this case?. i do realize one is sold out right now, but im not buying the card immediately, but within next few weeks and i'd like to know what a great brand(known for great support and easy to get along with) would be.

so get the sapphire since its same price+free shipping+free 4gb usb device ?.

i've heard that that sapphire though is clocked at 800mhz, and seeing how im not going to OC this card until im comfortable doing it*after i get my system built and stable* would it be better going with a 850mhz core clock?
oh ok, well then heh. So it'd just be smarter to get the open fan one for cheaper than a closed case one for like ~15$ more? (Is my first custom build fyi, reason i ask heh).
well it looks like the sapphires just sold out....

so if it stays that way then my vote is xfx is your next best bet.

EDIT: Personally IMO I would definitely go for the closed fan 5770s. always. its worth the extra 15 when your case's inner temp isn't raised by several degrees centigrade
oh ok, well then when i get the cash around(just waiting for it go to through heh) i'll see whats available and buy it based on the suggestions. Thanks heh.

Though does Xfx Have great support? nevermind about the lifetime thing i don't think i'd be selling it heh.
im loyal to sapphire just because i know they have high quality stuff and good customer service (it was good for me, was it good for u? lol) its too bad they dont throw vapor-x on every card because that is an awesome cooling solution
