Generally, ASUS, Diamond, EVGA, Sapphire, and HIS are the top manufacturers of ATi cards. This means low failure rates. But, on the off-chance that the card does fail, this group of manufacturers has good support and fast RMA service.
Gigabyte is on the next tier down. Slightly higher failure rates, and not as exceptional support or RMA service.
As for the model, it's a good card, and can handle some gaming.
I usually order my hardware from newegg, so check newegg.ca to see if you can find something similar for a better price (I don't know what the price is on the amazon listing you found).
