Definately Sapphire's Atomic HD7970 card (provided its only water cooling the gpu and not the cpu too else I'll go for the air cooled Atomic)
Need a beast of a card to take advantage of my 3930K smile.gif

Thread Starter 
Well with a few to many hours of researching MSI, Asus, and Sapphire's RMA departments I have a bunch of mixed answer's.

MSI seemed to have the least negative feedback out of the 3, but the few rma's that where bad seemed bad.. rolleyes.gif

Asus's rma department for mobo's seems different then their gpu's, most people said the 3 year warranty wasn't worth it due to horrible rma center, and customer service.

Sapphire sound the worse for many reason's. They where charging people 30 -45 dollars to send in a gpu to get looked at .... rolleyes.gif. Also very slow rma center from the sounds of it.

Man it all sounds like crap haha... From my research I am leaning towards 2x HD 7970 MSI's. Can anyone shed some light on this subject ?

Once again appreciate all the votes and input thumb.gif
