Powercolor PCS+ also is a good option. 950 mhz boost . good cooling solution. 2 year warranty. best price perf at AUD 299. 27.5 cm long

Gigabyte HD 7950 (900 mhz) has a very good windforce3x cooler. there are newer revisions of the card with FZ1 BIOS and 1 Ghz boost clocks . these cards come with locked voltage. stock voltage is around 1.25v. so you should be able to hit 1.1 ghz at stock voltage. keep that in mind while deciding. 3 year warranty. priced at AUD 329. 28.5 cm long

pick the card which you like. also make sure it will fit in your case.

If you can find these cards - Sapphire Product Code: 11196-16-40G without the boost, they are the very first shipped out and are voltage unlocked. They are actually better than the PCS+ version in terms of cooling performance just because the fans can be set more aggressively by switching the BIOS from BIOS 1 to BIOS 2 (dual BIOS switch). The 2nd BIOS also gives you the unlocked voltages and the means to hit 1200/6400 which my card runs at 24/7. It's a very under rated card that runs like a champ and I would recommend this!

IMHO opinion though if you could find the Gigabyte with Voltage unlocked I would go with those (hard to find now), that's the reason i went Sapphire this time over the other 2 and don't regret that decision!

EDIT:Looking at the link you gave, it seems to be the V2 with Boost, you could flash that to THIS which would give you the unlocked Voltage... but at your own risk of course.

Here's the main section with all the different Sapphire BIOS for reference, if you ever feel like doing it.

CLICK HERE

Just click on the detail for each BIOS and you should see which type it's for, the specific card is just under the download link.

The 7950 crushes the 660 Ti in everything, did I mention you get Crysis 3 free when you buy a 7950? biggrin.gif

The AMD cards always have driver problems plagued upon them... that is why people are willing to pay a premium for nvidia to avoid the damned driver issues.

Yea....no your wrong.

AMD has sorted out driver issues since the 5XXX series.

The new 7XXX series is fantastic, and now AMD have targerted stutter and are offering Crysis 3 * Bioshock , no reason not to get the 7950.

It also appears Crysis 3 is now part of the gaming evolved campgain, so maybe AMD will get some decent drivers out early.
