Tags: Graphics Cards Overclocking Graphics Product Last response: August 27, 2012 4:43 PM in Graphics & Displays Share FlipsideJohn August 27, 2012 4:25:16 PM Hi, I'm putting together a pc this week and the only thing left to buy is a graphics card. I decided to go with the 7950 b/c it overclocks so well. I'm stuck on which one to purchase though Gigabyte Windforce - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... MSI Twin Frozr III - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... HIS IceQ - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Sapphire - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I honestly can't decide between the 4, and I'm sure they'll all perform just fine. Sapphifre has the highest core clock out of the box, but this doesn't matter if I overclock it, so then it all comes down to which one overclocks better and has the best coolilng.

Sapphire cards overclock SO easily it's not even funny! I love Sapphire. I feel stupid NOT buying a Sapphire card before! Best of luck! Have fun Oh and even the Gigabyte is an amazing overclocker. But I'd go for the Sapphire.
