Ok so, I'm looking through amazon for this card and I was orginally planning to buy a Sapphire 7850 2GB for $180. But there is another one, HIS 7850 2GB that is $140. This could save me some money. Is the extra $40 worth it? Will I be seeing a real decent performance boost? I'm tight on money atm and want to save as much as I can, but still get a good card that will last me a year+.

PC Specs:
i5-4670k (CPU)
Asus Z87-A (MOBO)
NZXT 410 (Case)
Corsair TX750 (PSU)
ADATA 64GB (SSD)
1TB 7200RPM (HDD)

Well I think the Sapphire has a tiny bit of an edge but not much at all xD Also Sapphire is more reputable. But yeah $40 extra is quite a hefty chunk :L

There is absolutely no difference in cards, in terms of actual architecture.
Most companies will jew a extra buck by "factory overclock" which you can do yourself.
The pricetag usually makes up the cooling on the card too, if you wanna save money just buy the HIS

I am gald you have had luck with sapphire I never did but that wasnt my reason to choose his card the price and like the other op answered you can oc your own card like msi after burner ect. I am looking to replace my very old but very loved 5870 radeon soon been looking at the 7950 myself more likely make a purchase on one in a week or so myself. Good luck and enjoy!
