I'm going to buy a hd6850 within 2 weeks and i just wanted to know if you could recommend the best brand available as i've heard there are some problems with them being loud and not working properly with windows 7. its going to replace my hd4890 and my brother will have that card, i use windows 7 32bit and read on a thread that some people were getting blue screen crashes whilst gaming which wouldnt be good for me.
this is the one i was going to get http://www.ebuyer.com/product/244473
any advice will be appreciated thanks

I recent bought the Asus 6850 from eBuyer. Seemed to be the best compromise in terms of cooling, noise and power draw. Very pleased with it indeed, flawless performance, not a single game crash, BSOD or glitch in-game running it under Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. And this is on a PCI-E 1.0 mobo (with a beta bios update to run PCI-E 2.1 cards).

I think the XFX card is good for cooling but very noisy.
