Powercolor 7870 or msi 7850 PE?

Hi guys,

I'm wondering if I should get the Powercolor Radeon HD 7870 1000MHZ 2GB 4.8GBPS GDDR5 @ $219.99

http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=69557&vpn=AX7870%202GBD5-2DH&manufacture=PowerColor&promoid=1265


or the MSI Radeon HD 7850 PE OC 950MHZ 2GB 4.8GHZ GDDR5 @ $209.99

http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=72478&vpn=R7850%20PE2GD5%2FOC&manufacture=MSI%2FMicroStar&promoid=1265


The MSI 7850 PE has dual fan while the powercolor only has one.

THanks,

  1. A fan won't make the 7850 outperform the 7870. I'd get the 7870.
  2. That 7870 would probably have a 15%-20% performance advantage over that 7850 with both at stock, but it would also probably run much hotter.

    yeah and plus its probably noisier as well so I dunno should i go with better performance or better cooling and less noise. I couldnt find much review on the powercolor. If it were u would u go with the 7870? giving that it's only a $10 difference.

    I'd spend another $10 or so and get an HIS 7870, but I don't know how much you want to stretch your budget.

    the HIS 7870 is $270. id rather stay close to the $200 budget but thanks for the recommendation balzorthon
  6. $270?! That's not what it says when I look at it. I see $239.99 with a $20 MIR, $219.99.

    EDIT: Oh, it also has $7.56 shipping. I missed that earlier.
