A guy is claiming these are sapphire 6970s, but they look like visionteks to me. I'm not sure if you can tell if these are 6970s from the picture, but if he can't get the brand right i'm suspicious he cant get the model right.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I thought I'd try here. Thanks for the help guys!

the newegg picture is different but perhaps it's a newer revision.

if you go to sapphire's website and look at pictures of their HD 6900 series graphics card,
they look nothing like the craigslist image:

visiontek's website doesn't have nice images of their actual cards, just the boxes.. how lame.

That's pretty compelling evidence, but the guy insists that these are sapphire cards and not visiontek.

Those are reference model cards so no matter which manufacturer they're from, they will all look the same.

The pictures in your first post are of reference designs made by AMD.They may be by Visiontek by they are definitly not from Sapphire.

Even the very fist reference designs of the 6970 from Sapphire would have some blue somewhere.

I know my 6870 card has the same ports. Mini displayports, HDMI, DVI. Mine's a HIS.

Except that Sapphire also has a sticker on the fan.
