it was based just on budget, no nvidia card that can outperform a 6950 is less then 300. the new 6950 1gb are out now, and they are starting at 259 on newegg

Newegg.ca - SAPPHIRE 100312-1GSR Radeon HD 6950 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

im not too picky about brands, usually the cheaper one, or if one comes with more accessories. also some brands have better warranty then others. all preference at the end of the day, for the most part they will all perform the same

edit: i should mention stock for stock. overclock is always a variable, but its not guaranteed
