I'd recommend getting the second one, it's significantly faster and therefore it's better value for the money it costs.

def go for the 7870 you wont regret it when you are gaming its def worth the extra money...that being said alot of users complain about fan noise with the xfx 7870 cards.....so I would recommend this one instead

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

$10 more but imo its worth it

The 7870 for sure. Its one of the best price/performance cards out there.

Actually thats 10$ cheaper , is the performance the same as the black edition (i guess it should be basicly the same i just want to be sure) and another question , will my PSU be ok to Crossfire the 7870 in the future?

I think that PSU would be enough.

to answer your question about performance between the two cards...they should perform similar...the core clock on the gigabyte is slightly higher but the memory clock on the xfx one is slightly higher....but the gigabyte card has three fans on its heatsink so it SHOULD be a quieter cooler card.....not to mention people have complained alot about the xfx card's fan being loud
