Asus 6970

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am about to buy my system but all the 6970s keep going out of stock. Currently the only one that is in stock is the ASUS 6970. Can someone please tell me if it is worth it, considering it is more expensive than the sapphire and has less accessories. The reviews also don't seem too great. Thanks.

It's a reference card, it runs great but downside is noisier at 50% fan. Higher temp than non-ref.

These setup is flavor to watercooling block.

If you don't plan to watercool it. Look for a non-ref design.

or

GIGABYTE (What I have): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125395

But you got to wait... I know it's out of stock.
