Are Garret turbos worth the money?

I am in the market for a twin turbo kit and am wondering if the garret GT series turbos with the cartridge bearing and water cooled center section are worth the extra money. What do you think?
Thanks Jim.

Build specs and goals are needed if you want good opinions.
Unless you want the wow factor and the holes in your pockets, twin MP t-70s will get the job done(if the build demands that much.) With your average 302 stock bottom end H/C/I or stock motor deal, a single $500 dollar MP T-70 will do the trick.

I'm not going to say Garret's are junk because obviously they are amazing turbos. But unless it fits your budget and build warrants for them, I would not go crazy over them.
