More about : 7970 AMD Radeon December 26, 2012 4:56:20 AM you are right at sub 400 there are only 2 sweet spots, i have seen myself on newegg #1 sapphire ---> get this but you should oc to squeeze more power from it #2 gigabyte ---> factory oc, awesome cooler i would go with gigabyte personally cheapest GHz edition is about 450 not worth it m 0 l snoogins December 26, 2012 5:00:08 AM Thanks for the quick reply! The only concern I have with the Sapphire is the surplus of comments regarding coil whine. I suppose that can happen on any, but it is something to consider. Also, since I do want to OC, locked voltage would be a bummer as well. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Solved5970 vs 7970 which is better?
