More about hd6870 powercolor sapphire
  1. i would go with sapphire best costumer support.
  2. Sapphire here too.
  3. either except the powercolor. though i will be biased and say sapphire(their products are usually of high quality, including their old PSUs which cannot be found in the market anymore. their mobos are hit and miss)
  4. Sapphire gets my vote as well :) I've never had a problem with their customer service when things went downhill.
  5. I have all brands mentioned ( HIS = 1x4890 3years, Power Color = 2x4770 2.5years, Sapphire = 2x6950 9months ) & never have problem with any of these brands. But I am more comfortable with Sapphire too.
  6. HIS = likely fan noise
    PowerColour = cheap capacitor may cause ticking noise
    Sapphire = silent fan but base of heatsink kinda rough which may not dissipate heat as good as the others. Has better customer support than the other 2

    My pick: Sapphire
  7. sapphire and his iceq x will be the way to go instead of powercolor.:)

    in my opinion you should go with his iceq x hd 6870 for cheaper price when compared to the performance,better performance then both card,better cooling,better overclocking i mostly use sapphire cards but between that sapphire and his iceq x the his iceq x will be the way to go.:)
  8. and you're the only one person for suggesting to go with ICEQ....???
  9. Customer support isn't really much of a big deal where I live. The store that I'll buy one of the products from are very kind and give good warranty.

    I'll cross out PowerColor, bad quality from my old HD4650.

    ~~~

    So HIS IceQ X has these as an advantage:

    while Sapphire's offer seems to be nothing more special than the reference 6870.
  10. not sure, these are just more than showing off thier products but HIS brand isn't a bad choice..
    Sapphire overclock very well than those others.

    his iceq x is one of the best overclocker its cooling is also better then that sapphire one i m
    always buying sapphire gpus but when the simple sapphire vs his iceq x then i will go with i ceq x its better then it seems:)
  13. yes, but i like sapphire???
  14. yes but for @op questions answer is that iceq x is better.:)
  15. only in cooling :)
  16. no in overclocking too.:)
  17. you are giving dirt 3 edition one but ther is simle one.:)
  18. HIS is an also a simple only cooling is good otherwise the performance is neck to neck.
  19. ok, then let the decide?
  20. ok, then let the decide?
  21. its factory oced so its not simple.:D
  22. heads off you win!! :) :) :)
  23. ^no friend i didnt win his iceq x win.:)
  24. can't the OP overclock the sapphire himself?
    it will be even better to overclocking manually.
  25. Best answer
    yeah but there will be advantage first of all its already oced and when op thinks that he wants to oc his gpu then he can overclock it more to higher levels at the hd 6950 level or more.:)
  26. after overclocking also there will be good cooling because of its tech.:)
