Sapphire HD 7870 vs PowerColor HD 7870

My Specs:
i7-3770K, 16 GB RAM, 3 TB HDD, 256 GB SSD, Corsair H110 water cooling, HD 6770, 600 W PSU, CM Storm Trooper PC box, ASUS P8Z77-M PRO motherboard

I am going to buy a new GPU next week, so what do you recommend?

or
Sapphire HD 7870: http://www.emag.bg/video-karta-sapphire-amd-radeon-hd7870-2048mb-gddr5-256bit-dvi-hdmi-pci-e-product

I am currently thinking of getting the Sapphire, because I have Sapphire 6770 and can't complain (maxes out BF3 at 1920x1200 with 30 FPS in a server with 64 people). Because of my budget, I am going to get HD 7870, so don't recommend me other cards, I am familiar with all of their prices. So, to the point, which is better PowerColor or Sapphire HD 7870?

  1. Sapphire beats PowerColor every day of the week. Sapphire is one of the best brands for AMD graphics cards, in fact. PowerColor tends to have inferior cooling, and has a worse reputation with regard to reliability than Sapphire.
  2. I run sapphire cards in my 2 computers. They both run very cool and also very quiet so my choice would be the Sapphire.

    +1 Sapphire 7870 http://amzn.to/YaSrlG for sure! If you could stretch to the 7870 XT http://amzn.to/11R8RrF then I'd get that or you may even find one of these 7950's http://amzn.to/17WJUuU used for a good price and since they are a newer release model they aren't very old.

    Dude, I told you NOT to provide me with other links and cards! I live in Bulgaria, and all the things I have to pay before I receive the card in my hands, if I buy it from amazon, are going to cost around 150 euro apart from the price of the card itself (I know that because I have already ordered my water cooling from amazon, because no shop sold it in Bulgaria) + It won't have warranty and since I want the card next week and will probably get the money next Friday or Thursday, I will have to wait 1 more or even 2 more weeks if I get it from amazon (yet again I know from personal experience). Just read more carefully what I write. I am going to get Sapphire 7870 for 180 euro.
