I agree with zpwslayer's comment, "Stick with what you know is a reliable brand." Good rule to live by. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Now with that said, I have owned an XFX card and its been a trooper, and XFX's warranty seems really good to me. I've always thought that XFX was one of the better AMD card mfgs - up there with Sapphire. I don't own a 7950 though.
