Hey guys,

I am ready to buy an OC 6970 and I am thinking to buy one of these 2(MSI R6970 Lightning or Gigabyte GV-R697OC-2GD). Which one would you recommend?

Neither, if you are looking to get a good 6970 to OC then you should get the Asus DirectCU II 6970. It has an amazing cooler on it that will keep your temps down and only costs about $15 more.

If that won't fit in your case then you should go with Sapphire or the other Asus stock card. I've been burned by MSI and Gigabyte too many times and their customer service is a joke. Go with a more reliable brand.
