1. Gigabyte
2. Sapphire Vapor-X


I've read that there is a bios released for Gigabyte that will enable the core clock to 1GB. So I'd consider Gigabyte the first choice.

Asus is always a good choise. I did alot of research on 7950's and the Asus was the coolest and quietest of all the card, next to Sapphire then Gigabyte.

yeah i have heard from a user on anandtech forums who bought the gigabyte HD 7950 from superbiiz and got the newer version with boost bios and 1 ghz boost clocks. ask in the HD 7900 users thread too about if there is anything on the box cover which mentions this boost edition so that you can check with the site if its that boost version.

If you plan on watercooling your card then just get the reference card, no point in putting extra cash in the Vapor-X model.

If you're watercooling go with the Gigabyte because it uses a reference PCB. The Vapor-X and DCU II cards don't and I'm not sure about the MSI and XFX ones.

I'm pretty sure that applied to the Gigabyte 7970, not the 7950. I for one hope so, because im waiting for mine to arrive and would be super bummed to find volt locks on it
