I am planning to get either one of these, on newegg, they are just $10 cheaper.

I know the Radeon HD 6870 is smaller
But the Double D edition has 2 fans.
Is their any MAJOR difference? I plan to play GTA IV, Just Cause 2, BF3, etc.
I don't plan to crossfire nor use more than 1 monitor.
I plan to overclock them a little.

Two fans keep the card cooler and a little quieter than one fan. Mostly because the two fans can maintain a slower RPM while keeping the same temperature on the card. I always get dual fan GPUs. I wouldn't even consider a single fan model unless the deal was significantly better.

Do not double post or bump, that isn't tolerated here.
