I'm curious to see which you guys prefer? I've only had real experience with Gigabyte. Good card, I like it, but the fan shroud is pretty cheesy and actually rattles unless you speed the fan speed up to above 70% (At least on my card) I guess that's a pretty common complaint with the Windforce cards.

I've got a Sapphire 7970 on order, I've heard good things overall.

3/4 of the GPUs I've bought have been from MSI, and I've never been disappointed. Love the design of the Twin Frozr. I'm also a fan of HIS, they have some really nice, unique cooler designs.

Asus, but don't buy their laptops.

Sapphire and MSi get honorable mention.

This board loves EVGA, but MSI usually makes better stuff imo.

Sapphire. Also got an HIS IceQ X that's top notch, though.

Are you trying to save Zotac some embarrassment by not putting them on there? :P

Edit: Oh, it's full. Should have taken Powercolor out and put an Other option in imo

It's probably for their customer service reputation.

There's more than that. HIS, Club3D, Inno3D, Galaxy, Gainward, Diamond, and a bunch of others you rarely see. Too much to just have an "other" category.
