I am going to buy a 4890 video card. Each company company claims to be the best. Does anybody know which brand truly rates best? Send a reference if possible. :) 

More about : 4890 brand

The best warranty would be XFX.

But is it the best card? For example Asus has the highest specs.

overclock it maybe :sarcastic: 

Pick an OC supporting brand as well...ie not asus if they don't support it...

Thinking about an MSI 4890 OC, I have a 3870 OC by MSI it has been a good over overclocker.

+1 to Rewindlabs

XFX is one of the few ATI card companies that supports overclocking in their warranty therefore it would be a good option because you could overclock it to get those extra couple frames out of it and if anything goes wrong, you're still covered.

Also don't forget that you can overclock the xfx just as high and if not higher than the asus....

I just got an XOC 4890 from Diamond Multimedia last Tuesday. I'm running it at core clock-950MHZ and Memory at 1050Mhz. No issues so far. I got it for $229. I plan to crossfire with exact the same board soon.

I have use Diamond more than once with OC version. No problem with their boards.

I have use Sapphire before but did not overclock the board.

The normal price for the oc version is @279.... It was on sale for 3 days for $229.

so far xfx sounds to be the best choice mainly because of warranty unless some one else offers replacement when a card fails at factory or oc settings

Right, XFX is also good for Nvidia cards especially. Just a good brand overall I must say.

Funny how XFX is the best brand for both NVIDIA and ATI at this point...

Just go with the standard XFX card and OC it to overclocked specs.

+1, XFX is a pretty awesome brand, but I sorta like Sparkle Nvidia cards, I don't know why but certainly they're not one of the BIG manufacturers like EVGA, BFG or XFX. They have pretty good customer service though.
