Which Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition to get ?? ( Gigabyte vs Sapphire )
Hi friends my name is Swapnil Tiwari and I live in New Delhi, India. This is my first time building a Gaming PC from scratch. I want to play all the upcoming games on maximum settings at 60+ FPS @ 1080p. The budget is Rs. 100,000($1,837). I have finalised all the components and Graphic Card i.e. Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, but I am torn between these two cards : Gigabyte AMD/ATI GV-R797OC-3GD 3 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card http://www.flipkart.com/gigabyte- amd-ati-gv-r797oc-3gd-... GPU Clock : 1000 MHz Price : Rs. 29,250($538) OR Sapphire AMD/ATI HD 7970 DDR5 Vapor-X 3 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card http://www.flipkart.com/sapphire- amd-ati-hd-7970-ddr5-v... GPU Clock : 1000 MHz Price : Rs. 34,550($635) I am leaning towards Gigabyte as it is cheaper and benchmarks show the performance of both the cards are almost identical.

Here's the rest of the configuration : Motherboard : ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard Processor : Intel 3.4 GHz LGA 1155 Core i5 3570K Processor Monitor : Samsung 21.5 inch LED - S22B370H Monitor RAM : Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) PC RAM (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R) PSU : Corsair Enthusiast Series Modular TX750M - 80 PLUS Bronze Certified 750 Watt PSU CPU Cooler : Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Cooler Cabinet : BitFenix Outlaw APAC Blue Edition Cabinet HDD : Seagate Barracuda 1 TB Desktop Internal Hard Drive (ST31000524AS) SSD : Samsung 830 Series 64 GB SSD Internal Hard Drive Optical Drive : Samsung SH-224BB DVD Burner Internal Optical Drive OS : Microsoft Windows 8 Professional (64 Bit) Any suggestion is welcome.

Neither of your links work, I would suggest fixing those.
I'd go for the Sapphire Vapor-X myself. The Gigabyte Windforce 3X is a fairly decent cooling solution as well.
Get the Gigabyte, there is no reason to spend the extra money.
