XFX Core Edition FX-785A-ZNFC
Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX

This card at this price(under 200) seems pretty unbeatable, but the question is the feedback, only 4.
I don't seem to find any review of it so I do need some help on that, such as fan noice, heat, performance, etc...

I also noticed the Sapphire 7850 2GB 256bit
but I believe the CP ratio isn't as great as XFX one, although it's 2GB memory may have more futurity.

Thank you in advance.

PS1. Plan to use this new card for at least three years, my last one was MSI 4850
PS2. Games: D3, BF3, WoW Pandaria

I would stay away from the 1gb model...its odd bc the normal amount of memory on the 7850 is 2gb usually you do not see board partners put LESS ram in their models. the other model you linked to is a decent card...sapphire is a good brand I have used them in the past and I have no sum it up go with the sapphire one.

I agree that Sapphire is better, but does it really worth to pay 50$ more for another 1GB memory?
I used Sapphire long time ago and it's indeed a great brand, no issues no complains, just wondering the CP ratio.

cheapest 570 I found on newegg is 240$, out of budget :( 

Or you guys have any other great deals of 7000series?
I thought of 6850, but it's already an year(two?) old, not sure if it can stand for another 3+years...

Thank you.

7850 > 570. Get that Sapphire 7850 you won't be disappointed as it's going to overclock really well. It's also cheaper than the XFX now ;)
