Question on HD 7850

Hey Everyone,

So after seeing AMD's promo for the HD 7850 I think I have narrowed it down to that specific GPU. I have always owned Nvidia cards in the past and was thinking about getting the 650 Ti until I came across this promo. Needless to say I am now trying to narrow down the brand of card to choose. I have never really owned any of the brand that typically make the AMD cards and have really only owned computer parts from XFX. Any suggestions on brands? Or, are they pretty much all the same and just comes down to personal preference. Linked below is the two cards I am currently considering.

  3. In general, all "brands" (manufacturers to be precise) are the same as regards to quality. All it comes down to is their design. Sapphire isn't necessarily more trustworthy than XFX, but their video card has two fans, which results in less noise (because they spin slower) AND lower temperatures. Therefore, I must agree with previous posts.
  4. I have a Sapphire 7850 2 GB and I can only recommend it.
  5. I had this card here and it was just great http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161405
  6. Thanks for the input. I think I will end up picking up the Sapphire that I linked considering it is basicallyy the same price as the XFX.
