1. Which make to buy? Do any come with free games/subscriptions etc.? The Asus, for instance, is £10 more than the XFX - any reason?

2. Will the 5870 fit in an Antec 300?

Regards,
Pete.

Sapphire 5870 "Includes: Colin McRae DiRT 2 & Battlestations Pacific"

Im guessing probably fit easly into an Antec 300 :)

The ASUS cards has a 3 year warranty :D

also, will you have the card in 3 years? 2 years i can see but in 3 years time, new consoles should be out so PC ports of games will need a lot more oomph

back in the day sapphire use to make better cards then the rest, they use to use better heat sinks/fans etc. I have not followed it for a couple of years so i'm not quite sure now.

but based on text details on sites it seems sapphire still make the better versions e.g. 2gb version vapor x.

i personally got the asus version because there were no sapphire versions at the time i purchased.

hope that helps.
