I think I actually got mine from Sapphire.
I've always gone with Sapphire for my ATI cards. I wish they still sold the actual "Built by ATI" cards i think they were called, my X800XT was a built by ATI card. These newer ASUS cards are look pretty good though.
For Nvidia i usually look for evga or XFX.
The only ATI card I've had was from PowerColor I believe - shitpile of a thing, but how and ever...
For my nVidia graphics cards, I usually go with EVGA, BFG, or MSI. If I were to buy another ATI card - which might happen, though I'm waiting for the 300 series before I decide - I'd probably go with XFX or Sapphire.
I bought my nvidia from EVGA too. :)
My old one was MSI, and my GTs250 is Zotac. :)
Yeah, my 280 was MSI, my next card, if nVidia, will probably be EVGA, or XFX if an ATI.
I remember the MSI had a passive cooling in gold that was formed in the letters MSI.. :p
It was a radeon 9750 pro.. or something like that. =p
Asus, XFX, Powercolor, Diamond, Gigabyte, HIS, Visiontek, EVGA <3
Sapphire(not so much), Apollo, PNY 3
Out of those brands I've owned one from at least every one except HIS, but I've heard good things so <3
I'm surprised nobody's mentioned BFG yet. However, I think this is getting slightly off topic.

My 3850 was from HIS. It was a good card, i had it overclocked past 3870 speeds on the stock cooler.
I've heard bad things about Powercolor though, i usually try to avoid them when i'm shopping around.
