Need help for hd 6970 xfire purchase

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
which is better to get from newegg?
1-GIGABYTE GV-R697UD-2GD REV2.0 Radeon HD 6970 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
or
2-GIGABYTE GV-R697OC-2GD Radeon HD 6970 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

i do notice on option 2 the core clock is 900MHz and memory clock is 1375MHz (5.5Gbps) versus option 1 being 880MHz core clock and having same memroy clock.

pricing is 349.99 to 359.99 im going to purchase but not sure if rev2.0 is big difference at all? thank you for replys.

get the cheaper version. 10mhz overclock is ridiculous. you can do that yourself in 5 seconds. they are the exact same card.

Don't waste money on an pre-overclocked card. Grab the other...

Next time use links to the site you're thinking about buying from so it'll make it easier for people to help you.

factory overclocked cards are worthless. it's all about the price and cooling
there are many guides on overclocking. heres a good one.
