Asus Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB Video Card VS Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB Video Card

I understand that the Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB Video Card is much better than the Asus Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB Video Card, but I'm not looking for the best graphics in the world and wouldn't mind spending about 70$ less. I have heard that the 7870 is the best bang for you buck video card out there though. I'm also open to any other video card you guys think is better.

  1. What about this one?
    Yesterday I have ordered mine for about 94€ (lowest price I could find in Croatia)
  2. i guess i'm looking at the same version but the Asus brand instead of the Sapphire, is Sapphire better?
  3. the 770 i'm looking at is about 90$ and the 7870 is about 160$ (in the USA)
  4. Best answer
    The Asus Radeon HD 7770 GHz has its core clock at 1000 MHz and memory clock at 4.5 Ghz.
    The sapphire hd7770 ghz oc has the core clock at 1100 MHz and memory at 5 ghz.
    Both are 128 bit. Meaning the sapphire ghz oc runs faster.
    the 7870 has the same speed as my 7770 ghz oc. But it has 1gb more memory and 2 fans, thus costing 70$ more.
  5. sounds good to me, i switched the parts and its only 5$ more. i'm not looking for the greatest gaming computer in the world only one that will run smoothly so it seems like the 7770 will do the job and for much cheaper than the 7870.
