reliability isn't linear through all the cards. all the companies have bad cards somewhere.

But you do get a warranty so you shouldn't worry about that.

im really between the MSI R7950 and the GIGA 7950. I like the 3gb RAM and that should hopefully last a few years as far as keeping up with new games and such. Do you have any pros/cons.

historically, gigabytes large 3 fan models have been slightly louder than the competitors, in return that its one of the coolest when it comes to temperatures.

just in my opinion, MSi is like the you cant really go wrong choice when picking the gpu as there isnt any large problems i havent heard from msi yet. sometimes it may not be the best, but I havent seen it being the worst.(and right now the prices on msi products are much more cheap then its compeitors)
