EVGA, but it had a $30 mail in rebate, so it came out to the same price =D
Nice, that's the one I have and it is very solid. At stock volts it can reach speeds many other gts's need vmods for. Also, evga has a lifetime warranty and a step-up program. Since we are so close to the new cards being released, you can wait a month or two for the prices to come down, and then you can pay the difference what you just paid for that card you just got and one of the soon to be released one's. You have 90 days to do that, so keep that in mind. You have to register the product w/i 30 days to do it also.

Yea, but a rebate is still a rebate. even if it takes 12 weeks, I'll be fine with it as long as it happens as I won't be spending the money on anything else =)

Yeah mir's are usually not too reliable. In this situation I think the evga was still the right choice though considering.

Yeah 4ghz no problem. Every chip is different, and these later ones don't seem to be clocking quite as well as the first ones that came out. You could probably hit 4.25 w/o too much trouble, and if you get a good one you can get to 4.5 and beyond w/ the right settings, but that will be pushing temps on air. You can expect to have a 4ghz 24/7 stable oc though w/ some tweaking.

One big enough to make you wonder why the hell they put the stock fansink in. I could barely do 2.8ghz with a stock fansink but with a Xigmatek I can do 3.8ghz and even higher but I need faster ram for that :(

I also got a replacement for one of the stock case fans which is much better.
