Lots of people seem to like XFX for their lifetime warranties.

if you want to go for eyefinity setup definitely go for the one with 2GB memory. the 1GB memory will choke your performance if you want to crank up the setting. if you want best performance on multi monitor gaming without sacrificing the image quality got for CF setup
