HD 6950 - HIS vs. XFX build
Jan 13, 2011, 10:07 PM
I am building an HD 6950 system with an i5 2500k. I was going to have the system built by NCIX likely (I am super short on time for building a rig).
So, I was set on the XFX build. But NCIX has a deal on for HIS HD 6950.
Can anyone tell me the difference between the two products??? I am willing to spend the extra coin on the XFX if it is better... but is it?
HIS Radeon HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E 2XDVI HDMI 2x Mini DisplayPort Video Card
XFX Radeon HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E 2XDVI HDMI 2x Mini DisplayPort Video Card
Thanks for any help!

Both are good brands. It is basically up to you You save money going with the HIS but you will get the Dual lifetime warranty on the XFX.
