Sapphire 7970 OC 3gb - Ghz yes or not?

Hello, I want to buy new graphic card. After some googlin and searchin i decide for 7970 Sapphire 3gb, but i dont know which one have that Ghz edition. I saw it on forums that gigabyte dont have and sapphire does but there are more sapphire version and i dont know which one have that Ghz stuff or which is best. And also i wanna know if sapphire have good cooling - low noises with full load.
Sorry for my english and lack of knowledge and thx for answers.

  1. doesnt matter, gigahertz is just a slightly overclocked gpu, u can manually overclock it.
  2. and yes sapphires good and has good cooling, but id recommand gigabyte windforce over the sapphire one unless u get sapphire vapor-x 7970.

    I saw on tomshardware forums this "Gigabyte card is based on the same reference BIOS of the normal HD 7970 but factory overclocked to 1 GHz, the Sapphire one is based on the BIOS of the new HD 7970 which is called GHz Edition which has improved Texture Fillrate & Memory Bandwidth. " so i thought GHz is better because of improved Texture Fillrate & Memory Bandwidth(but i dont know what it mean) and didnt know if every sapphire have that GHz stuff.
    And yea i probably buy card with Vapor-x, windforce looks good but i want sapphire becouse of better overclocking.

    Thanks.
  4. ya i doubt its any better, even in benches doesnt change jack.

    the sapphire doesnt overclock better, also when u get a card its like the lottery u can win and get a good card that ocs or a bad one that doesnt, so dont just go about oh this overclocks better, id say some have better cooling than others.
