    Sapphire would be my choice for the fact they do make good performance cards with great OC abilitys. :thumb:

    I hate my PowerColor 7500. I can't update my drivers.
    P.S. Before you say that I'm doing it wrong....I've tried many ways to get around it & got friends to try, all with no luck.
    I'm going with a "Built By ATI" AIW 9700 Pro as soon as "The Boss" lets me....

    Can't help you with Tyan (no experience), but I would choose Sapphire over PowerColor.

    I've got a Powercolor 9700 Pro AIW, and love it.
    But that doesn't answer your question either. :)
