[ SOLVED] Sapphire 7970 OC vs Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X OC

I have made my mind to get either of these Sapphire cards. I could either get the $350 non Vapor X or wait until the $450 price of the Vapor-X goes down. I've seen great reviews for both, is the Vapor X really worth it or is the non Vapor X basically the same?

Don't try to persuade me into getting anything else, I have made up my mind. Thanks is advance.

  1. Is it just me or is anyone else getting "bad requests" page when you click on the link. Anyways nice name....rottencurry :lol:

    Edit: I believe both cards are not too different spec wise...however the Vapor X is made of better components such as the cooler, that can lead to better overclocks and can withstand the heat associated with crossfiring cards.
  2. The 350$ sapphire is non ghz edition and can't overclock as well as the vapor-x which is ghz edition.
    If money ain't a problem then get the 7970 ghz edition vapor-x.
  3. I think I'll stick with the non Vapor X because I am not really planning to overclock like crazy, but I might a little. Also, $450 seems a little much, even though I really want it I just recently bought a $150 power supply and am also planning on getting a 1080p monitor in the future. Hopefully it works well :D.
