As a general rule of thumb, if I select a particular ati series (6950, 5870, 5970 etc) what should I use to deliminate between the brands?

I'd get the reference MSI off newegg (the $279 one), since there's a very very good chance you can unlock the extra shaders (1536 versus 1408). That should help you gain 30-40mhash/s

both of my unlocked 6950's are crunching out 412-415 mhash/s with the gpu clock @ 965mhz, @ 1145mv
