Whats the BEST PCI-E graphics card I can get (including brand)?? Money is not a problem.
I want something super fast and good for games. Good quality components - therefore the brand matters. Don't care about VIVO or bundled software.
Not overly concerned about SLI either but I can do that if it would be best.
Have had one suggestion about waiting for the R520 which sounds really cool but who knows when it will be out.

Well; judging by the tests run by PC World it looks like
HIS Radeon X850 XT takes the cake...

Tests? Hmm, must go buy a mag tomorrow then. It did on Toms Hardware too although the SLI 6800Us beat it. But then thats 2 cards.

However all reviews don't mention reliability/quality, whats the HIS like in that dept?

Unsure as I haven't had a chance to read it indepth, have so far skimmed the article, but it doesn't appear to mention reliability/quality
