    I recommend going with a much better card like the 670 gtx, the 7870 is nothing compared to the 670 gtx.
  5. Now the difference between the Pro4 and the Extreme4 is pretty much just the phases for overclocking right? Because i really dont plan on overclocking that much until i can understand a little more about PC's
  6. Yes, it has less power phases, i thought that you wanted the extreme 4, you can put the pro 4 in there.
  7. Alright thank you for answering my questions and helping me out!!
