Need advice on Sapphire HD7850 vs. Powercolor HD7870

I'm going to upgrade from Sapphire HD6850 and at my local store I found these two cards with reasonable prices. My first choice was Sapphire, since I read a lot of good reviews on Sapphire but seeing a 7870 with a good price (only $20 more expensive), I'm confused. I'm playing games with the resolution of 1920x1080.

What would you recommend? Thanks in advance.

  1. Best answer
    Buy the strongest graphics card that your psu and wallet will permit.
    In this case, the 7870. If you find a similarly performing GTX660 at a good price, that is an option too.
  2. Buying a sapphire card will give you better cooling meaning more room for overclocking but if your not really into overclocking and the price difference isn't much of a problem then go with the HD7870 from powercolor both are really great cards for the price
