I am in the middle of purchasing a new computer and I am stumped right now on what model I should get for the SAPPHIRE HD 5770. I thought it was random to have 3 different models but maybe each one has a history that other people are aware of and have experience with. Based on my specs below, can you guys please help me decide on which model to get that's reliable?

Here are my potential specs:

Running Windows 7 Ultimate x64

- Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor Model BX80601920 - Retail

- GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD3 LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

- CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMD4GX3M2A1600C8 - Retail

- CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7

- Western Digital Caviar Blue WD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive



Now here are the several different models that SAPPHIRE has made for this video card. What the hell should I get?!?!?!?!

They're all the same. Just get whatever one is cheaper, luv.

Also, the graphics card in your system is severely limiting. Try to wait and purchase a card like the HD5850/HD5870.

There is actually yet another model too, the 100283-3L, not too much difference between them, slightly different cooling aspects as to where the air flows in/out of the card.

I see a problem with your setup, you want a i7 920 that is a LGA 1366 socket while your motherboard is a LGA 1156 socket aswell as your RAM being dual channel DDR3, this implies you want an LGA 1156 CPU correct?

And your links are broken, at least to me.

Basically they are all the same in terms of performance and quality. They just have slightly different heatsinks attached to them.
100283L has the standard reference heatsink, all of the air is pushed out of the case.

100283-2L and 100283-3L have pretty much the same heatsink, air is circulated back into the case.

Vapor-X 100283VXL has a better quality heatsink than the others with a slight overclock on the card aswell I believe.

Id personally go for the cheapest one but some like the prestige of the VaporX and overcloking ability.

Oh, I didn't see the Vapor-X one. That, and Toxic, are the better-cooled versions of the card.

You REALLY need to just create your own thread for this question. It has NOTHING to do with this original thread.

However, you really ought to consider your monitor. An ATI 5770 may not be enough to feed your monitor resolution depending on what that is. With a new sandy, the 5770 would be the odd ball unless you have a low res monitor.

I'd almost say you should sell your current Vapor-X 5770 and buy a newer/faster/better card.
