now, the new egg card is
ASUS HD7970-3GD5-3DI2S Radeon HD 7970 3GB
as apposed to all the other asus 7970 cards i see on the market,
ASUS HD7970-3GD5 Radeon HD 7970 3GB
does that "3DI2S" mean anything? if not please let me know, your answers will be greatly appreciated as this is the LAST item i need for my setup, ive got everything else. Baring the GFX card, because of this reason...
Search asus 7970 on amazon.com, it lists it at $601 if im correct by "beachaudio" who sell the card via amazon. It is listed as "ASUS radeon 7970 3GD5".
Then newegg sell it for $560 listed as "ASUS HD7970-3GD5-3DI2S"
Now, does the 3DI2S on the end mean the card is different in any way whatsoever?
Basically will go with buyin it from newegg coz its cheaper, BUT am unsure of this extended product name, from which is making me insecure about whether theyre different or not.
I am in australia and have mates in USA who ship me stuff i want for free without going through customs, and wouldnt want to buy a gfx card that isnt what im expecting because i bought it cheaper.
this is the default video card, no differences in memory/clock, the other 2 asus cards have differences because they are overclocked and have other memory specs, for that they replaced the heatsink also...
there is no need to be insecure, this graphics card is the standard one, and if you aren't going to overclock it you can go for it, the default cooler is great for normal use.
