XFX is just as good as EVGA. Maybe better if you like the factory overclocked cards. Much better than Asus or BFG cards.

I would go EVGA if possible, their customer service is a force to be reckoned with. They agreed to replace two fried 8800's owned by a guy on Xtremesystems when the ramsink fell off the top card and landed on the bottom card, causing a short which fried both cards.

EVGA support is great. I had to RMA a card or two through them and it was quick and easy.

thats not totally true, on some boards that is the case, but there are boards that do operate in full 16x while in sli, all depends on the chipset
