All seem to be decent brands, but I think XFX is known for great warranties.

If heat is a major concern, maybe spend a few bucks more and get one of these.

I've got one that is mounted underneath my 9600gt, and I don't even think my card gets out of the 50 degrees celcius range during gaming. Idle is in the low 40's, and I think the card only runs like 20% fan speed for noise sake.

Make sure XFX warranty cover your country, they offer longer warranty if you register it within 30days...
