Need Advice 6800 GT Brand

I'm going to get an nVidia 6800 GT card soon. Prices have come down some and I think it's worth it now. I've surfed around and found reviews of the chipset, but I'm wondering what brand I should go with.

On Pricewatch.com the cheapest is an Apollo, followed by PNY and XFX. I'd be willing to spend the extra money on an eVga or MSI card if I thought it was worth it.

So far I'm leaning toward PNY, since they're pretty cheap (less than $350), a brand I recognize, and have a good warranty.

Any advice is appreciated, and if anyone knows of a better deal, please let me know.

(an AGP card, not PCIe)

Go for a BFG GT OC. Its OC'd out of the box, and their warranty is the best I've ever seen. Its a little more expensive than the crappy brands, but the one I have kicks, and its only a 6600 GT OC.

I had the 6800 OC, well worth it. Eventhoung it is overclocked right out of the box I suggest overclocking it more, and upping that FPS. Go play some games at 8x AF/ 4x AA on all high at 1600x1200 resolution. Make your head spin ,and if you ever get a PCIe setup the SLI would kick some major ass.

As previously stated, get the BFG 6800 GT OC. It's available in both AGP 8X and PCIE. You just can't go wrrong with it. I have mine OCd more than it was out of the box to a stock 6800 Ultras speeds (both memory and GPU) and have had no problems. I even got it up to 420 Mhz once with the memory clocked at 1.2 MHz and ran 3DMark05 giving me a score of 4985 with an Athlon XP CPU and PC2100 DDR.
