those cards get ridiculously hot and consume much power. 2 of them I would never put in my case.

@OP: y no wait for 7870? It is as fast as 570, but newer tech, runs cooler, consumes less energy nd all that for the same price.

MSI videocard>Asus videocard
Asus videocard's PCB thickness is about half that of msi/sapphire/xfx/evga
(They're made cheaper)
IMO Asus is NOT good for videocards..And Sapphire and MSI are..
