post #41 of 46
And don't forget that TPU are still using 11.1 for their reviews, on 11.4 you will see a pretty big jump.

Go for Gigabyte or MSI with their 3rd party non-stock coolers IMHO.

From what i've heard and seen lately, Asus and MSi seem to be the way to go,
of the two I would go with MSi for crossfire though, Asus cards are triple slot whereas MSi are dual slots.
or you might go with the cheaper sapphire reference cards.

As for GigaByte, I wouldn't have the slightest clue, it may be best to research them all and decide which is best for the price for you.

The gigabyte, Asus and MSi non-ref coolers are all very good though.
