Ok so I'm stuck between two videocards, both 7950


Which one of these are better?

HIS Radeon HD 7950 IceQ 3GB - 319€

Gigabyte Radeon HD 7950 3GB Windforce x3 - 323€

Both have almost same power consumption, both have good cooling, but which one is better?

Better off grabbing a GTX 670

Agree with Redeemer, but I've got a soft spot for HIS.

the GTX 670 is good, but it's 60€ more expensive and the HD 7950 can be OC'd over the GTX 670 stock

60€ is pretty much for a few more frames

The 670 can overclock as well, but I see your point.
I still have a soft spot for HIS.

Get the gigabyte card. The windforce X3 cooler is incredible so needless to say it's a monstrous overclocker.

They're not completely identical but the cooler on my 6970 is the same windforce X3 and it's inaudible inside the case. Also managed to OC my card from 880 to 990 MHz stable; the card design by gigabyte is superior, IMO.
