ASUS, got two of them, they have all copper heatsinks, and copper heatsinks on the RAM chips, unlike the others. ASUS ones are blue and copper and white colored too, so they look really sweet. Run well also!! WEE!!!

Nothing bad happens as long as you take it slow, and have proper cooling. Trust me! OCing is easy!

I have a GIgabyte motherboard. Do I have to get the Gigabyte PCIe 6600GT graphics card or can I get a different manufacturer? Are there any conflicts?

No, don't get Gigabytes, it is not the best. Go with the ASUS one, it has the best cooling onboard, meaning nice overclocks... Otherwise, go with eVGA.
