I am about to pull the trigger on a direct cu2 7870 for 250 but I saw the deal on an xfx 7870 for 250 with mir. Will the extra fan make a real difference in ocing or should I go for the new card?

I'd go with the Asus 7870, even if it is used it still has a serial based warranty so if it dies, rma'ing it shouldn't be a problem. Only 7870 I'd buy from xfx is the black edition

I have had much better results overclocking with a dual fan. Even if it just helps to cool the vram better, it's worth it.
