They're all similar quality wise but I've never have any problem with Sapphire cards before. I guess it's personal preference.

Well because sapphire cards are tend to be rarer chance of being defective than powercolor. If you have Rs. 18000, why you not getting something better like 560 ti? Well anyway, system specs please so we are sure that you can put it.

Black edition has a small factory overclock that can easily be achieved with any 6870 model. Don't waste cash and just buy the cheapest you can find ;)

This one is the best if you're looking for the cheapest one:

This one if you want to pay Rs. 10000 for better cooler:

Hope that answer your question, XFX cards are pretty expensive in India, the only one that is cheap in India is sapphire.

I don't really think you'll have no bottleneck, but there is a possibility if it doesn't. If it does though you can OC it. And which 550W PSU unit you have?

In some games your CPU might be a bottleneck. Don't crank the graphic settings in BF3, that's for sure. Aim for medium with 0x AA and ambient occlusion @ off.

Nonono, get something like q9550, It will suffice you for gaming if you are looking to spend some money on the processor.

No, 6870 with your system config max will consume about 400W. But since some PSUs (even the 550W's!) does not provide 400W, I have to see what is your PSU.

The item has to be purchased from 'AMAZON' which charges around $70 as import fees & $30 for shipping that is approx Rs 5000 added to Rs8000 the total becomes Rs 13,000 and one has to wait for 15 days for the product to arrive & no Warranties where as it can be purchased for Rs10,500 locally + you get the warranties :kaola:
