OR

I'm unsure which of them is actually better than the other bacause the oc edition says it has a core clock speed of 1050 mhz but the ghz edition from the name ha 1000mhz but they're usually arround 1100 mhz

so which one is better?

  1. they are equal, pick a card based on which has a better cooler, more bundled games, better warranty. clock speeds don't matter as you can set them youself

    Those card will perform about the same. But can I recommend you to get the one with Tahiti LE GPU instead of Pitcairn view link for all the information about those particular 7870.

    They are clocked lower but perform better since it is using a better GPU.
