I'm still unsure which to pick so I woul dlike some opinions.

I have decided on going with an ATI Radeon 5770 w/ 1GB VRAM.

I am stuck between choosing the brand

Please post you which brand you would recommend, and why. I want to make an informed decision on the brand.

Looking for things such as Customer Service, Warranty, longevity of Video Card, etc.


Also, what's the difference between a card marked with Juniper and one that isn't?

Thanks for your time.

XFX offers a double lifetime warranty, which means it covers you and anyone you transfer the warranty too. Nice little feature that most don't.

Juniper is just a title ATI puts on the 57xx GPUs. They did the whole evergreen theme. 58xx was Cyprus and 56xx was redwood. Don't worry if it's listed in the title or not. Just marketing.

Thank you for your replies, I appreciate it. I was thinking of XFX or Sapphire, but might go with XFX just because of the warranty.
