I would choose the Sapphire model but MSI works great, too. The ASUS DC2 7850 is also another great choice.

I have a Sapphire 7850 OCed to 1150mHz, it's really not difficult to OC so I wouldn't bother spending the money for a factory OC.

As for the cooling, they both have similar systems, and my card has never gone above 70C (it's only hit 70 a couple times, usually 60ish under load) and idles at 29-30C usually.

thanks for input. I was wondering......


Is the Corsair HX650 worth the extra $40 its at newegg for $119.

HX650 is modular and you get 2 extra years warranty (7 total). Also i pretty sure TX650 V2 only has 2 pci express 6+2 . The HX650 has 4 pci express 6+2.


Can i 3 way crossfire with TX650 V2?

Thanks

no need to cash extra $40 get the tx 650 it will do the job and it can handle both gpu and cpu overclocked.:)
