Im trying to stay in the 160$ range so im deciding between the msi hawk n460gtx (168 shipped after 10 newegg coupon) vs the sapphire 6870 3l, not the flex or vapor (165 after new egg coupon). ill be running the card at 1920x1200
+1^ that's one difference . however the biggest difference is the $200 one has a branded cooler (vapor x) which means its going to be quieter and it will be cooler.when you add more voltage to the card for a better overclock it will help a lot . gigabyte also has one its called wind force. i don't recommend it if you're on a budget.
