Sapphire is a lot cheaper then Asus. So does that mean sapphire isnt as good in terms of reliability? Right now the Asus Radeon HD 7950 is about the same price as the Sapphire Radeon HD 7970. What would you do? Does Sapphire have a bad rep?
I'd agree that Sapphire doesn't have a bad rep. It's just that Asus is the best(arguably) and so their product do cost more. Supposedly it does show... & yup, just looking up the high-end Radeon cards on Tom's (GPU noise) and sure enough the Asus 7950 wins, making only 36.90 db.
