Best/Most Reliable Graphics Card Brand for Radeon HD 7850/7870 Tags: Graphics Cards Computers HD Graphics Radeon Last response: June 24, 2013 9:13 AM in Graphics & Displays Share steelteal June 24, 2013 5:42:28 AM Hi, I have a couple of questions about which graphics card brand to choose for my build. 1. What is the difference between these 2 7850's? XFX Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card and XFX Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card. Is it just the fans? 2. Which brand is the most reliable/best quality? XFX, Sapphire, or MSI? 3. Of the graphics cards linked above which would be the best? Or should I go with this XFX Radeon HD 7870 2GB Video Card, the GHz edition of it, or the Sapphire Version? 4. Is the GHz Edition worth it? Thanks and feel free to comment on the build linked at the top.

They had one with a MSI Z87 G45 for even less, but it sold out ( I bought one). This one will sell out fast too. I prefer XFX for the lifetime warranty.

Yeah, I think I'm gonna go with the Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB Video Card. Since it's cheaper than the XFX version right now. Reply to steelteal Can't find your answer ? Ask !

If you plan to upgrade it within 2 yrs, that's cool, but it sure makes it easier to sell your used card when it has a lifetime warranty vs. no warranty at all. Just something to think about, the choice is yours and yours alone.
