I'm going with 2 x 4890, which brand should I go for, XFX or Powercolor?
They're both the factory OC editions, Powercolor is $15 cheaper.

Here is the Powercolor : http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=37882&vpn=AX...

Here is the XFX : http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=37431&promoi...

They look the same, unless there is a difference in cooling solutions?
Please help, gonna order in 15 min.

XFX has a far better warranty if that matters.. I usualyl prefer them to al teh other ati brands except sapphire.

As far as stock goes here is no difference though. You get a better warranty with the 15 extra dollars, usualyl a game with the xfx ones as well.

I dunno about XFX or Powercolor but I prefer either HIS or Sapphire.

I usually prefer HIS since they have those amazing IceQ coolers. Sapphire and XFX are also really nice brands.

Check the non reference designs... should be better

If your talking about only those two I'd have to say XFX is a higher quality.
