http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... SAPPHIRE

After MIR XFX is 199 and Sapphire is 179 CAD.

The website does not reflect prices exactly but trust me I know I can get them for this price 100%.

We'll is there anything I am overlooking or is the only difference the 1gb vs 2gb and Lifetime Warranty VS 2 years.

I will be running only one Monitor @ 1920x1080.

Tell me what you think.

Thanks for all feedback <3.

The performance difference, if any, is negligible. As long as you have a suitable power supply (PSU) I would recommend the cheaper of the 2. A 2 year warranty is fine because you'll likely upgrade by then anyway. Good luck!

750w PSU w/ a max of 850w I would assume this should do?

Ya I have currently a 5770 XFX BE.

Which will become my brother's new card once the Sapphire comes in.

Your PSU should be good to go. Have fun!
