Okay, that review's good but it's for a DDR4 version. Haven't found one of those. This is DDR3. From the benchmarks I've seen between the 3850 and 3870, DDR4 doesn't make that much of a difference, so I'm going to go with the Gigabyte card for sure. I've heard cooling issues with both the 3970's and the 8800gt's with stock cooling, so the Zalman fan's a big selling point to me.
