Im running a i5 3570k on a z77extreme 4 mobo with a 600 w cx corsair. I want to purchase a 7950 if it is compatible with my build and am stumped on which one to buy. Should I go with the sapphire, gigabyte, xfx or his?
This is the card I'm leaning towards: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

What do you all think?

Well that is a good card and I'll say go for it. i'd say try Asus out, their support is good. You can also go for XFX and Sapphire, I've heard about some problems with the Gigabyte version. As your board also supports nVidia cards I would tell you to take those cards into consideration.

Comes with "boost" as well. GPU automatically overclocks itself if it has thermal/power headroom.

Are the sapphire 7xxx series fixed from the crash issues. I was looking at the megabyte bc I read a lot on ppl buying the sapphire 7xxx series with manufacture problems. I heard only like 6% of the cards were defected.. so no biggy, but I don't want to risk spending money on a bad card. This may have been a 7870 issue only..not sure.
