    Default Best 6800 GT Brand?

    In your opinion, what 6800 GT brand is the best overall. Take into account software bundle, price, heatsink, noise ,overclocking, reliability....ect.
    Thx in advance. Also if you know of any brands to stay away from ,please tell me.

    I recomend you dont get a one with a custom cooler if possable, try to get a refrence cooler. Though there is a problem with my card physicaly it gets to 120C and crashes the computer. BFG is replacing it though they were a big help. So there are pros to that I guess...
    My Current Rigs:
    Antec P180, OCZ Powerstream 520W, DFI nF4 SLI-DR Expert, AMD X2 4400 w/XP120(2.6GHz@1.45v), 2x1GB OCZ Platnium PC3200, BFG 7900GT@592/800(1.6), WD 250GB SATA, Maxtor 120GB IDE, LG DVD/CD Combo(black), Sony DRU-810 DL DVD Burner(black)
    3DMark01:25379, 3DMark03:19746

    Its wonderfull, they seem to be having problems with heat though with the rev. 2 cooler more so than the refrence one. I am sending it back within the next week or so.

    For $285? Is it used or something? It usually goes for $370-$400...

    In any case, I would recommend you do get a custom cooler if you intend to overclock. The Leadtek is good for that (and I think Gigabyte's is, too), or you could get something else and upgrade it with a Arctic Cooling NV Silencer 5. The custom coolers are usually better (at least they are with what I've mentioned).

    Funny, I just looked in Newegg last night and they were all where they were supposed to be... And now they're mostly under $300. Damn, for that price, it's hard to say no. Except for the Asus, which has a lowered memory speed and less RAM.

    Unless there's something I'm missing, like they've disabled pipes or something tricky like that, I'd say go for that XFX, immediately. Used 6800GTs usually go for more than that.
