^ I am thinking of getting the 7850 but why the msi the gigabyte is the same price?? is it because the msi is oc'd???

^ Because i think MSI and ASUS make better GPU of course i have no proof just that's my opinion i have had two gigabyte cards die on me before and no MSI or Asus cards have ever given me any issues gigabyte makes good GPU but the ones that died on me were gigabyte 7850
