Hi guys, I think I have decided on getting a 7950 for my first build unless the 700 series at the end of the month is particularly good for the money.
That being said I cannot decide/find the best 7950, i have looked at a few discussions and benchmarks and the Sapphire vapor x seems to be a good one. My problem is there are alot of variations on the vapor x alone such as the 950mhz etc so I was wondering what the best of the lot was for about £250. Thanks
Thanks for the replies guys, I was wondering about the vapor x as some people report they cannot over clock theirs or that they are voltage locked.
I would be very grateful if you could link me to the vapor x variant that is good for over clocking - maybe even the cards that you guys have as they sound good - as it is quite hard to search on the iPad I have to use because my laptop has finally died after 6 years
Mine came in, as did many before me, needing two 8 pins instead of a 6 pin and an 8 pin. The "Lethal Boost" BIOS, aka the "press the button, easy overclock", is voltage locked. However, the normal BIOS is not and I was able to get a stable 1150 core and 1300 memory after a little tinkering ... will probably shoot for higher when I have more time.
