I don't know if they're the best, but whenever I get ready to replace my 7850 (which is a Sapphire) and I'm going to try my hardest to get another Sapphire made card.

My 4850 is from them and it idles at 50C load 90-100C. It hasn't died in 5 years so they make good ****. I probably got the **** batch too from the looks of it when you google my card and see other peoples temps.

I have a 6850 by them and it's pretty good. I also have an HIS iceqx card that hasn't given me any trouble, as well.

I believe the consensus is Sapphire makes good cards, but you're in for some pain if you need to RMA.

True for a number of Chinese manufacturers.

Them and Gigabyte are my personal favorite for amd/ati.

A bit wary on msi.
Excellent cards, but did they ever fix the fan issue?

I pretty much swear by MSI cards now.

Who has the best heatsink? My friend's asus is like 3x heavier than my xfx. Do evga's have some wicked design under dem sleek outer covering? What about under msi/gigabyte/sapphire's double fans they like to do?

edit: i'm talking about all cards now, i guess
