Tell ya one thing, I would seriously reconsider going to GameVE.com for anything. :( They got major probs with shipping good equipment, 5900's more importantly.

Peace,

Id go for the Gainward because it appears to be a 5900 Non-Ultra, witch is better than a 5900XT.

Newegg is excellent, you shouldn't have a problem.

I agree, and I think it has a better HSF/Ram sinks, from memory, the MSI doesnt have any cooling for the ram?

Also if it is the NU 5900 you can possibly update to 5950 BIOS of Gainward and get better OCing performance.
