  1. I'm not sure what your question is. The Sapphire is better in every way, better cooler, higher clock rate, lower cost. What else do you need?
  2. Sapphire hands down
  3. I hear good things about both cards. I was just curious of how well both will perform in a crossfire set up

    The only issue with crossfire is the first card may overheat. That is, having two double slot cards right next to each other may cause the one that had the second card above it to overheat since the area above it where it gets its cooling air is taken by another card. To fix this you need a case with good cooling, preferably one with a fan on the side right above the Radeon farm.
  5. I have the cm storm trooper as my case
