I have had gigabyte cards, msi, asus, and a few other cards and taken most of them apart and added 3rd party coolers and o clocked a few. Asus usually stands up the best and lasts the longest. Admitting they don't make stuff like the used to (asus used to be the best) but still top of the line.

yea asus used to be good. but no i just want to get a nice ati card made by ati. i heard they dont have the right drivers which wont be true hopefully when i get this card. i though of getting a 6600gt or a regular 6800 but i want really good performance.

Nvidia doesnt make the 6800GT or 6800Ultra anymore. What it DOES make is the 6800GS, which there is no AGP version. In fact, Nvidia has NO mid-range card in the AGP market.
