the ad says no warranty. don't even think of that. get the Sapphire HD 7870 XT (Tahiti LE) . at stock speeds performs on par with HD 7950 (800 mhz) and GTX 660 Ti. overclocks to 1.2 ghz and matches HD 7970(925 mhz). good cooler.

yeah thats the best option . sapphire HD 7950 boost for USD 280 after rebate. selling one of the games would get you 20 - 30 bucks.

Grab the Boost XT, best bang for the buck and it OCs very well according to just about everyone, not sure if the voltage is locker or not, but I think it isn't. I am in the process of getting a $300 card, and debating between that and other Sapphire 7950s the -2L and -3L

I been thinking of grabbing 2 of those cards. If I do so, will I get 6 games or Crysis and Bioshock twice?

Great choice, both games can be sold for at least $30 each if you want so you would be out of pocket only $190 for the card (doesn't like rebates tongue.gif but at least this one is a card). thumb.gif I'm at 70% on Tomb raider and rather enjoy it, glad I got it from someone at such a good discount too.

This sucks running off of the integrated graphics until my new card comes. I was really enjoying FC3 frown.gif
