I prefer Sapphire due too USUALLY having higher binned chips since they are AMDs biggest partner.

BUT for 20$ less that Gigabyte is looking pretty nice!

If you can save 20$ for something else you need, then Gigabyte, if you have 20$ to burn, its a toss up really.

i got a feeling there will be another price drop in around 2 week for many gpu lineup.

i hope u wait, i think its better to take the xfx double D, or the asus,

the gigabyte and sapphire are fine, take a look at their clockspeed, noise and temp

but the GB will look better in ur rig

WHY would you suggest XFX? They are KNOWN to overheat and have the cheapest and worst VRM cooling I have seen in ages.

I have the XFX Ghost 7950 and to yet experience and cooling problems with mine I wanted to throw that out there but the 2 times I did buy Gigabyte Gpu one card was amazing years ago and The 6950 DIED in just 3 short days no tests no oc while finishing up my build had to fight newegg on the rma because I tossed out the outter carton of box.
