I personally prefer sapphire, except if u crossfire there wont be much space in between the cards, but there will be enough. not sure about powercolor, but sapphire is usually cream of the crop for radeons..

Asus, Sapphire. Both amazing. But Sapphire tends to be a bit more quality than Asus. Sapphire is to Amd like EVGA is to Nvidia. Asus is high end, but not that high end.

well i think asus is better in core clocks and memory compare to sapphire. in this case i can stretch my budget till $300 but if 7870 is ok and cheaper why not buy the cheapest one right if its just a little speed.

OMG look at the two links that he posted, the resolutions are different... The Sapphire one is tested at higher esolutions than the asus one is, so of course it will do worse..
