Sapphire 7970 OC vs Vapor-X GHz 3GB vs GHz 6GB vs Toxic Tags: Radeon Overclocking Sapphire Graphics Last response: September 20, 2012 4:58 AM in Graphics & Displays Share MX5J6 September 20, 2012 2:45:35 AM I just have a couple of questions about these 4 cards. First can the standard OC 7970 overclock as high as the others, including the toxic? Does the Vapor-X cooling make a difference when OCing? Can the Toxic OC higher than the other 7970's I listed? Is the extra VRAM of the GHz 6GB and Toxic useless even when gaming in 3D but on a single monitor?

Check your motherboard manufacturer website for the list of video cards that are compatible w/ your motherboard. If you don't have at least quad core, then start over.
