I'm wanting a Radeon HD 7870 card, but I'm stuck between an Asus or an XFX. Which one is my best option?

[ ] Look at reviews of both in the same TAC 2.0+ compliant case.
[ ] Look at the connectivity on the back of the cards and see what is better for you in the long run.
[ ] Compare the coolers.

In performance & cooling the ASUS beat the XFX. So go with it.
Be sure u have a quality psu to handle that card and your system. About 550-600W from a quality vendor like Antec,Corsair(not CX_builder sersies),Seasonic,XFX.

Have fun!

Is Geforce a better option than Radeon? I keep running into back and forth arguments over the two
