HIS vs ASUS HD7950s?

HIS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161429

ASUS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121716

Hey guys!

Currently stuck between these two cards. They seem to have really good reviews, at least from the newegg feedback I read. It generally comes down to performance (temps, OC, etc.)

What do you think?

Thanks.

  1. Both are really good. I would get whats cheaper. Asus is known to be a constant reliable manufacturer but this generation HIS has really made a comeback.
  2. It really depends on which of the company would have better customer support, etc...
    Both of the cards are basically same, and they would perform very similarly.
    It is up to you to pick the model you like more.

  3. According to newegg, ASUS provides a 3-year warranty as opposed to HIS 2-year.

    I guess I might opt for ASUS since I've heard that feedback for HIS Support has been pretty bad. If anyone can confirm this, it looks like a no brainer.

    Thanks for the replys :)

    EDIT: Looking into it, it seems that support for both seem to be iffy. However, the 3-year warranty by ASUS seems like something I would not want to pass up.

    I agree. 3 years is a third longer. And you should not trust newegg reviews, people don't know ANYTHING on there.

    1- Novuake is right, don't entirely trust newegg reviews.
    2- Be sure that you really need a 3 year warranty, but usually if the product has a longer warranty, it means that the quality is better and they won't need to keep giving refunds.
    3- Usually people will change their GPUs after 1-2 years, so keep that in mind, except if this is an one-term investment.

  6. I have had 2 HIS cards with bad fans... ASUS for me
  7. After some more research and asking around, it looks like I'll be taking the ASUS for it's better support and warranty. I do plan on keeping my components for a while :)

    Thanks to everyone who answered!
