AMD Radeon HD 7770 asus or gigabyte ?

http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/HD7770DC1GD5/#specifications
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4133#sp

which one should i get ?
-both are OC but the gigabyte one has a higher memory\core clock and i could also get it a little bit cheaper.
-will there be any future problem with gigabyte as it has a highly overclocked memory\core clock ?
P.S. i don't really care about the fan noise

  1. Personally, I prefer ASUS for AMD gpu's, but that's just my opinion. There is absolutely no way you can predict future problems with any gpu - they either work or they don't. You can get some kind of "feel" for initial defects by reading reviews and noting DOA's, but long term use is a crap shoot. I suspect you could probably o/c the ASUS just as well, but on a card in that price range, the difference in performance may not be that noticeable. Also, o/c tends to shorten the life of cpu/gpu due to the additional heat generated.

    If it were me, I'd get the ASUS.

    so you're saying that the asus could have a longer life ?
    that's an important issue for me as i will not be able to upgrade my system for a long time, maybe like 4/5 years or something :\

    What I am saying is you cannot tell if a certain component will run longer than another. However, a component that is run at lower temperature (lower clock speed) SHOULD last longer than one run at higher temperature (higher clock speed).

    In my experience, ASUS products have been very reliable for me. I cannot promise you will have the same experience, but I like ASUS.

    sorry to bother you again :) but which do you think is better or has a better cooling system Sapphire vapor-x or Asus because they almost has the same price
  5. I would take the ASUS every time.
