I'd go with the XFX. It's cheap and it's a good brand.
And XFX had quite much problems with the 6600GT (I think) but as far as I know their cards don't have any problems. (of course sometimes there can be faulty cards, but this happens with EVERY manufacturer)

DONT GO MSI! Ive heard that their packaging sucks. I mean some cards even come broken. Spending that kinda money, i wouldnt risk it. Sure you can return it, but why hassle with it. Get something that is well known. Like
http://www.scorptec.com.au/index.php?prdid=17229

Thats the one im feelin'. but eh.. Personal preference. This can go either way. Look at my ''6800gs list'' thread. There is alot of arguing in it. And ot goes the opposite each time, brand wise, engine wise. Whatever it be, its personal preference..
