I'll be honest with you, I've used cards made by Albatron, XFX, Palit, Gigabyte and Sapphire. They all work and they all live essentially forever.
The brands of card that have given me problems in the past were ASUS, Powercolor and XFX.
My mom had an ASUS Radeon HD 6450 in her HTPC and it gave her problems immediately so I brought it back to Canada Computers and replaced it with an XFX model. After that, no problems.
I bought a pair of Powercolor Radeon HD 7870 XT cards which worked fine on their own but would immediately crash if I engaged Crossfire. I brought them back to NCIX and replaced them with two Gigabyte HD 7970s. I never had a problem with those.
The XFX problem was with my RX 5700 XT Triple Dissipation. However, that was my sixth card from them and the card that they sent as a replacement was also just fine (a THICC-III). My GeForce 6200, my twin Radeon HD 4870s, my Radeon HD 5450 and 6450 all still work to this day. Well, my 6200 doesn't but that's because I threw it away as there's nothing today that can use an AGP card but it worked right up to the end.
This just goes to show you that you can get a defective card of ANY brand so it's not worth worrying about as it's extremely rare for any of them to have problems.
I used to work for Tiger Direct and I never noticed one brand of card (Radeon OR GeForce) being especially better than any other, despite people talking about how great EVGA, ASUS and Sapphire are. Remember that all of these AIB partners are huge tech companies in their own right and to them, making a video card is essentially child's play.
Just get whatever one costs the least and is made by a brand that you recognise. I believe that right now, the best deal on the RX 6600 XT is on the Challenger model from ASRock. Newegg has it for $270:
ASRock Challenger D Radeon RX 6600 XT: $270
As for performance, the most
that I've ever seen between one card and another was a "whopping" 5% and the "faster" card cost an extra $100. There's really no reason to care what "brand" of card you buy. You'll be in good shape no matter what.
