Solved Need help choosing a 7970 ghz edition Tags: Graphics Cards Overclocking Sapphire Gigabyte Graphics Product Last response: August 14, 2012 7:29 AM in Graphics & Displays Share nacos August 14, 2012 6:35:44 AM I plan on buying a 7970 ghz edition and have limited it to these three choices Sapphire Vapor-X http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... XFX Double D http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Gigabyte Windforce x3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I would buy a regular 7970 and overclock it but I've heard that the 7970s are better binned.

And I was a bit hesitant to recommend the gigabyte as well in the beginning due to their meh customer support. Then I'll go back to my original recommendation...get the Sapphire Vapor-X...it looks and sounds badass. nacos August 14, 2012 7:29:17 AM Alright thanks! nacos August 14, 2012 7:29:24 AM Best answer selected by nacos.
