I'm pissed no-one's using the reference (blower) design, I prefer them - only one is Club iirc, and they're not sold here in the US.

External exhaust is not worth the higher operating temperatures and noise output. Your case is fully capable of dissipating the heat from an internal exhaust cooler. All (or close to it) of the manufacturers will have reference models available, though.

For example: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131467

Whah, I just checked Newegg earlier today and none were listed....you must be a sourcerer tongue.gif

Also yea if you have fans worth a tinkers dam at doing that, the Define mini comes with weak fans, and if you use better ones the case howls due to the design of the front intake/door.
In another case/setup, I wouldn't care - but I'm going to be stuck with what I've got for a bit most likely :/

More models will reveal themselves in the near future, too. Refresh the HD 7870 page every so often tongue.gif Prices are a bit high, though. Hopefully they'll come down a bit after the GTX680 release.

$350 for the 7870 seems pretty steep at this point. Maybe I'll see if I can pick up one used in a while.

I'm waiting for it to regulate to $350. Right now, it's $10 over and I'm not really willing to overpay.

PowerColor, Diamiond, and VisionTek have reference designs for US release.
Blower designs generally make more noise, but if that doesn't bother you, then go for it. I like the uniformity and look of the shroud for the reference cards personally.
I might buy a Sapphire or PowerColor.

Isn't $10 worth having the card for a month or two longer? I can understand $50-$100 difference, but $10 seems insignificant to me. I just bought a 7850 Gigabyte OC card for $259.

I feel as though the 7850s shoudl be in the $200 range, while the 7870's should be in the $280 range, but I am currently using an 8800 GTS, and figured it was worth it to have the card longer.

By that logic newer generations of card would up their price constantly, as newer mid-range cards would be equal to the previous top ones while consuming less power. New generations are supposed to bring more performance at a lower price, not the same performance at the same price.

I just bought my 'Gigabyte Radeon HD 7850 OC 975MHZ' last night for $279.99. It was shipped out today via FedEx and should get to me by tomorrow. Shipping+insurance was $20 and taxes were $40. So in total, I paid $340.

Seems a little pricey but worthy of and upgrade from my 4890.

If you are not in hurry to buy a new GPU I'd wait until Nvidia launches their midrange cards, probably GTX 660 and 670. That should finally bring the prices down across the product range. 7870 at 350$ is way too expensive.
