AMD 7850 Manufacturers

Hello, I need a little help in choosing which manufacturer for the 7850. I know XFX has the best warranty and customer service, but I don't know if their single fan cards are loud and hot, because I'm pretty concerned about the idle/2d mode noise levels of these graphics cards. The other choices are HIS, Powercolor, and Visiontek. The HIS is an Iceq X, and supposedly runs at 28dba idle/2d mode and runs cool. I've heard nothing about their warranty though, does anyone have any experiences with them? Also, the XFX one I'm looking at only has a 2 year warranty, along with the others.

(I'll be gaming a 1280x1024 mostly and don't know if 1GB of vram would be enough for that and maybe texture packs on some games)

Thanks, and if you need the links:
