Working on new build. Need input on new GPU.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I've been looking at 6870's on newegg. Alot of them are on rebate for around $160-$180. I need help with making up my mind. Any suggestions?

Yeah, 6870's are good. Another cool one that I personally was looking at was the His6850 IceQ X Turbo which is major overclocked. I'll give you a link

When I was researching 6870's for my build it came down to these three. think you would be happy with any of these.

I ended buying 2 of these instead as they were similar price here in NZ to the above at the time. They over clock well considering stock volts. Currently have them clocked to 930/1400

I'll recommend getting the referenced version. The Sapphire version seems to be a solid buy.

Why reference? He has no case,so airflow is not important,and there are much quieter cooling available.Take your pick,the proprietary designs from Asus,Sapphire,HIS,Gigabyte,XFX,MSI versions are all good cards.I would take the MSI,Asus,Sapphire,HIS in that order.

I just bought this one. Was planning to CF 2 of them but I don't think I will have enough room on my mobo to do 2 @ 16x. But now that Ive been playing with it I'm pretty sure I wont need it
