Which one is better? If they are both bad could you recommend another.

Actually Scan doesn't have that card in currently "Item currently awaiting an ETA. ", So the one from Novatech is likely the best choice. | Report abuse Reply to cliffro cliffro January 13, 2013 8:16:51 PM http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/amdradeon... This one is a bit more(£10 more) and comes with Far Cry 3 a fun game if you don't already have it. And has 3 fans, I'll admit I'm a bit of a Gigabyte fanboy when it comes to their video cards. | Report abuse Reply to cliffro Related ressources Differences between gpus - Forum Any Major Difference Between GPUs - Forum Help Me Decide between GPUS . - Forum What is the difference between those 5xxx GPUs ?? - Forum Debating between 3 GPUs ... - Forum Ask the community Publish Nia11 January 13, 2013 8:51:24 PM cliffro said:http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/amdradeon...

Your case has 230mm of space with a hard drive in front of the video card and 330 without one. The Gigabyte is 280 mm in length. | Report abuse Reply to cliffro lostgamer_03 January 13, 2013 9:19:26 PM Twin Frozr is the better of the two. It has superior cooling. http://dk.msi.com/product/vga/R7870-2GD5T-OC.html http://dk.msi.com/product/vga/R7870-Twin-Frozr-2GD5-OC.... Here you can compare the words of MSI themselfes. | Report abuse Reply to lostgamer_03 cliffro January 14, 2013 2:57:25 AM True the Twin Frozr has 5 heat pipes versus 3 on the other MSI. So the cooler is superior to it's non TF brother. But the Gigabyte has superior performance in games thanks to it's higher OC and is quieter and cooler than the Twin Frozr as seen below Temps Gigabyte Temps MSI Twin Frozr Edit: Actually the Twin Frozr is pretty darn hot in comparison and louder to boot.
