it is factory clocked and has got the best cooler on it thumb.gif i personally like its performance so i suggested with what experience i have the $150 ones run abit hot and have shorter life span due to it the quality also matters and if it fits in his budget then y not go for it thumb.gif

The factory clock on that MSI is only a 30mhz increase on the core with no change to the memory. I am running 2 Diamond 6870's (reference cards) and do not have temperature issues even with a substantial OC and voltage increases so I don't see what the problem is.

450

dude go for a 6950 2GB.

It gives great performance and depending on the game you'l like that 2GB, also you can xfire later and beat down the 7970.

Got my MSI Twin Frozr II 6950 2gb for $230 the day after Christmas from NCIX.com. Best way to spend Christmas money biggrin.gif .

Anyways OP get a 6950 for a little extra cash one sale or get a 6870 if you want to save some. Look at this comparison and see if it's worth it to you.
