    So I'm going to buy a hd 5850 and I would like to know if a Gigabyte is any good, are there any issues with this brand? Will I be able to increase the voltage for higher overclocking?

    The card is this one on the picture, this is the reference one right?

    Looks like a reference cooler with a sticker on it like asus does so you SHOULD be able to increase the voltage

    That is a reference card, and the Gigabyte brand is very reputable.
