  1. they both mostly perform same,but hd 7870 is at less price + better oc room so my choice would be hd 7870xt as it just kisses gtx 660ti and hd 7950 in performance.

    Good lucK!

    Engineers select different specs to produce a graphics card to meet their price/performance objectives.
    It is useless to use specs as a selection criteria. Cards in the same price tier will perform about the same.
    It takes a benchmark to detect the differences. Even then, FPS benchmarks do not tell the whole story.

  14. MSI doesn't have one.

    The only ones I know are the SAPPHIRE and Powercolor. I think the 3D Club Joker 7870 is an LE one, anyone else know?
  15. go with saphhire over power cooler.
