This is a nice comparison of the two cards.
I may go with a 7850 reference in hopes it unlocks but then again I may not take the chance on that and just get a 7870
The extra bucks is not worth the performance, go for the Sapphire 7850 non OC then overclock it yourself.

I doubt that, I really think that 7850 is the best price-performance ratio in its price range. I've seen very good reviews with this card especially the Sapphire one.

I just picked up a Sapphire 7870 for $306 cdn on a pricematch. Overclocked to 1200/1450 right away and blew my old 560ti out of the water.

I was in the same boat as you and if you can find a 7870 for what I paid, it is well worth it. At MSRP, go for the 7850.

ur gonna want a good cpu to keep up with crossfired 7850s...that is if your into benching. my 6100 @ 4.8 nets me a 3d11 performance score of p9800 and its the only thing holding me back. Piledriver cannot be released soon enough. If you OC the cards high enough you'll easily outperform a single overclocked 6990.

Where exactly did you find it for that cheap? If I could get one for around $300, I'd definitely get a 7870.

I have a pair of 5770's with that cooler, don't knock it. I can crank mine up to whatever I want and they stay well below 80°C even in my old Rosewill heat-box case

I'm pretty sure it didn't "blow up" infact, he's using it now in crossfire. The reason why it didn't work was because he flashed it with a different manufacturer's bios. Stick to just overclocking it and it'll be fine. thumb.gif
