Hey guys after looking through many sites and threads I've found that 7870 HD is better than 660 GTX ( opinion ) and I'm confused between two brands.

Sapphire :

XFX:

http://www.amazon.com/XFX-DisplayPort-PCI-Express-FX787...

Please tell me which one is better according to temperature , noise , performance , overclocking potential , drivers compatibility .

both of them are for 200$ , should I go for the 660 GTX (also 200$) or should I wait for 760 GTX ( if releasing price is less than 230$ )

THANKS!!!!!!!

Hey
1. Go with Asus according to my personal experience. It is best than any other brand.
2. If you want from these 2 brands I will go with sapphire. It is better than xfx. In xfx many problems come with time .
I hope it helps.
Thank you.

I would recommend Sapphire because of its good cooling of its critical internal components like GPU, VRM and memory. I heard XFX had heat and reliability issues so i wont recommend it. Take a look at this review of Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHZ OC edition at :
