Which Radeon HD 7870 Is The Best?

I'm hoping to buy the Radeon HD 7870, but don't know which brand i should buy it from? ( MSI, Asus, etc... )

What I'm looking:

- Built solid and will last long

- 2 Fans on the GPU

- Red / Black aesthetics on the GPU itself

I was originally going to go with the MSI Hawk Edition 7870 , but its a Blue color, and dosent match my case

I'm looking for a Red / Black / Hellish look for my gaming rig

i can't have a red / black / hellish case with a dark blue GPU in it

Thanks in advance!

    dude that 7950 on NCIX is 400 bucks. Out of the budget, are there any Radeon HD "7870" that are black and red?????????

    This is what im looking for on a 7870:

    - Built solid and will last long

    - 2 Fans on the GPU

    - Red / Black aesthetics on the GPU itself
  5. i think this is what you want: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008DW92G0/?tag=pcpapi-20 black/red aesthetics with ASUS exclusive DirectCU cooler.

    imo... its a little bit stupid to get that card because for a few bucks more you can get a decent version of the 7950.

    Honestly, if aesthetics are a big factor in your build i'd get this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-r79502pmd3gd5oc but i prefer this one: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-video-card-fx795atdjc ... sadly, it doesn't match the aesthetics of your PC (black and red, right?) but honestly.... that's way too nerdish, buy whatever gives you more performance.
