which brand better? Sapphire or MSI

I'm going to buy a 7770, but I don't know which brand I should buy. I know they are both top notch and pretty much the same in terms of performance. I want a brand thats actually reliable, good cooling system, and won't break within months, if not weeks. I don't care about the price.

    i've heard a rumor that sapphire is known to produce faulty produces more than that of the other brands, and that their customer support is horrendous. While I dont know if this is true or not, I do know that every brand product can be faulty. nonetheless, I'm headed a bit towards the sapphire brand.

    like I said, I don't care which is cheaper. I care about the performance/reliability and whatnot.

    I've had a really bad experience with MSI, so I personally would avoid them. They're customer service is okay, but the build quality of their cards can be awful, I'm going to have to RMA my R7870 HAWK a third time, because they just can't seem to get it right.

    Sapphire's international customer support is supposedly awful. Outside of the US you apparently have to ship your card internationally, possibly across an ocean, and that will cost you a pretty penny to do so. I have owned one Sapphire card, and it hasn't failed on me yet, it's serving as my backup card for when my MSI card seems to inevitably fail .
  7. a sapphire one will be a clever choice for sure
