DQ6 is tougher and more resistant than the DS4. It's capacitor wise, and all sorts of electric components. It's better for OCing and is cooler.

ok im getting the DQ6, this does work with nvidia right? i just saw that they mentioned Crossfire support for ATI. I was planning on getting an 8800GTS and i'd imagine that it will support it. if not im going to have to go with the striker extreme.

Yes, it will work just fine with an Nvidia card, just don't try to SLI them .
