Im kind of stuck on which gpu to go for. Has anyone here bought either an XFX or ASUS 6800GT or Ultra card.

So far from what ive read the XFX is a popular card but from what i can see the ASUS is a single slot card and it has a blue light which would look good in my acrylic case :)

Can anyone can give me more details on these two gpu's.

Many thanks in advance!!!!!

p.s If you own either of these cards please post some pics and benchies.

Just hope you get a good asus sample as a review I saw didn't get much of an overclock compared to nvidia's reference design.

XFX, Asus have only have 2 ns mem and is hotter and makes more noise, look at anandtech.

My XFX runs at 425/1200 default and clocks 470/1300+

XFX has a much better warranty, and i heard they overclock well, i'd go with XFX. ever had to deal with asus on their warranty? it's worse than the 7th relm of hell.

XFX do seem to have a good card. Would you recommend anything better than XFX??
