  1. so gigabyte isnt good? even though it has three fans?
  2. I would go with the 6870, it is more future-proof than the 6770. It has enough power to play today's games at the highest power, and most coming out as well.
  3. Looking to Buy hd radeon 6870 , Powercolor cheapest of them all but i want the most reliable , the gigabyte looks like it has good cooling (3 fans) which one should i go with?

  4. Not a bad idea to consider the Gigabyte card with the 3 fans. Better cooling means less heat which gives your card more reliability and logetivity.
  5. Gigabyte ain't bad but the others are better. I have a gigabyte and not completely happy with it.
    Also warrenty is better with xfx i believe. ( lifetime in the USA )
  6. You're probably from Spain i realize now, so lifetime warrenty wouldn't apply :whistle:
  7. Euh, Monsta ; don't wanne nag or something but your ssd is probably Corsair, not Corsiar. ;)

    Gigabyte vs XFX vs Powercolor vs HIS VS Sapphire
  9. i am from canada , would the lifetime warranty apply to me?
  10. Spain, Canada, allmost right . . .

    Good one, don't know that, probably not, seems to be only the case with the Yanks :D
  11. I think they might look at the warrenty at the right part of the screen ; http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150563
  12. Hahaha thanks Robjordy for picking that up, Corsiar sounds rather exotic doesnt it it.LOL
    BTW yeah go with the 6870 over the 6770.
  13. Like Caviar :lol:

    Gigabyte warrenty is 3 years, but i do see some others with lifetime like Visiontek :ouch:
  14. Sapphire only 2 year, meh !
  15. how about the flex edition (sapphire 6870) would that benefit over the regular sapphire 6870?
  16. The flex edition allows you to use Eyefinity without the use of display port , it works with just the DVI connectors from the back of the card if you are running 3 monitors.
  17. ok i am always going to use 1 monitor , how about powercolor bad company?
  18. Personally I like XFX over powercolor, and right now I would really consider getting a 2gb model of the 6870 as the latest games like Skyrim and BF3 are pushing the vram bracket. 1gb is starting to lose its appeal.
    Here is a card worth considering at 179 with rebate.

  19. XFX VS Gigabyte , i cant afford that right now i think i will be fine with the 1gb for now , but do u think the 3 fan will make a difference on the gigabyte??
  20. No problem , the Gigabyte one is a good card, I have the 560ti version and the Windforce cooler is awesome.
  21. XFX lifetime warranty does apply in canada! now , what would u choose between the two?
  22. My GTX 560Ti SOC with Windforce is pretty loud imo. I had a XFX 6870 BE which was more silent.

    I would go for the lifetime guarantee.
    If you ever wanne sell this card second hand that will be a big selling promo imo.
  23. tru i guess xfx it is , thanks guys
  24. Robjordy is right, go with the lifetime guarantee that XFX has to offer, I have owned 3 XFX cards and have never had a problem with any of them.
