Thank you everyone for the feedback. I made notes for future Radeon purchases from everyone's reply. Some of these brands everyone was recommending is pretty much the same for nVidia cards. I'm partial to the Asus & Evga cards; probably my all time favorite was BFGTech - to bad they went out of business. I think I still have the BFGTech 6800 Ultra in my spare part bins or did I recycle it at the e-waste dump?
I'd really luck out with the Sapphire Toxic and with a switch the Sapphire Toxic 6950 becomes a 6970. Really cool but that was short live as I install the Sapphire into my daughters recent build.
Now, I'm thinking of ordering a pair for myself :alien:
