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. Any help will be appreciated. 3570k (will be overclocking) 8gb ram 1920x1080 resolution More about : 7950 purchase ing BigMack70 August 27, 2012 4:28:05 PM The only one of those I know for sure is a fully custom card is the Sapphire, and Sapphire is the best Radeon brand anyways, so I'd pick that one up for overclocking m 0 l arzbhatia a b U Graphics card August 27, 2012 4:30:01 PM Sapphire!
