Okay is this the official release of the AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition?

for some reason i don't think it is, when i go to AMD's site, they show the 7870 a different color?
and I beleive it was made by sapphire?

This is it! AMD does not make the cards themselves their partners do and they can change the color of the PCB as they like! Sapphire, MSI, Gigabyte..... are all considered partners!

GIGABYTE GV-R787OC-2GD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

all they had left on new egg, hopefully not much of a difference from the MSI branded one. ill be crossing my fingers it works well for the gaming rig im building.

Oh you think it will be pretty legit for gaming and basic programs?

Of course it will, Gigabyte is a very good brand and the 7870 is a very powerful card (almost as good as a GTX 580 actually)
