I am planning to build my first PC and wondering about these two cards. can help me which is best and what are the pro's and con's of each if possible. I am not a total gamer but i wanted to play Battlefield and other games. can someone educate me with this two Graphics Cards. Here are the two cards.
PowerColor PCS+ AX7870 2GBD5-2DHPPV GHz Ed (Vortex II Ed.) 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCIE 3.0 CrossFireX Support
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition OC 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support
So.. your dilemma is should you pick 7870 of company A or company B?
Thats the simplest problem you can have- pick the cheaper one, or the one with longer warranty. If they're both the same, pick OC version.
OC version is unlikely to be more than 5% faster, witch translates into- you're not going to notice it being faster in games, but the price or warranty- you might.
i think that's it. it's between A or B product. because i don't know much about Graphics Cards. so they're not the same which is Sapphire is Ghz Edition OC while PowerColor is only Ghz Edition. so i better go to Sapphire even though PowerColor is a lil bit more high on core clock.
