Default I need a second 4870 for Crossfire

I currently have a Asus EAH4870 DK 1GB running at stock speeds but it does overclock well. I'd like to add a second card to do cross fire. I was going to buy another Asus but they seem to be priced $50-100 more than some other brands. So I'm considering a XFX, Power Color or Sapphire. Maybe another brand, I'd prefer something that isn't overclocked by default and would be a good match with my exisitng card.

Any vanilla 4870 from those companies I would say is good. though the OC potential is a gamble at best.
