I know someone with a GeCube and they have no problem with that brand. So you should have no problems. Most brands that are cheap are so because they do not include additional software, basically just the card and the drivers.

Yes, the actual card is excellent. A good choice. Mine is Sapphire and it works fine. I'd definetly go with that card, if not with a different company.

Gecube are cheap, but they are good!

Look around for the Powercolor equivalent, they are about the same price, and their 9600XT 128mb version outperforms the Gecube 9600XT 256mb.
