Mmmmmm, I would have to vote twice. :lol:

I have used Sapphire for ATI based cards for years (still love the X800GT with the extra pipes unlocked), and I currently use an eVGA 8800GTX that's spectacular. Drivers worked flawlessly on Win 7 RC, runs cool, my only complaint is the size, if my HDD cage were a bit taller (actually split into one 3-bay cage, a seperate bracket on top, and a fifth mounted to the ODD cage) the card would simply be too long. That's more of an nVidia design, though, not eVGA. First venture into nVidia for me in, oh, six years or more, very pleased with it.

Most of my cards have been ATi. 6 of them were "Built By" and 5 were "Powered By". However, most of ATi/AMD's own cards were manufactured by Diamond and last couple years Sapphire. Hence, most of my cards have actually been made by Diamond or Sapphire. I've had a pair of Powercolors that were reliable, too.

My current Sapphire card is a beast. I've never been impressed with the quality of components Sapphire uses on cards that they brand for themselves, but their reliability does impress considering.

I didn't know there was such a thing. Must of meant "Video card company" Big difference.

Honestly can not go wrong with any of these. They make Very Nice Boards and GPU's. I want to say that, they have nice Art still and graphics painted on the heat shield. XFX, Asus, you name it. There's some cute looking girl painted on the metal :D

In truth, AMD and Nvidia are the only major brands of video chips (GPU) produced today. But their designs are used by other company brands, sometimes just a name change, other times a bit of personal programming change. Paradise, Tseng Labs and Texas Instruments and others have faded away.
