Get the 2 gb one. The oc'd editions are a joke and the vanilla (or plain clocked) cards will overclock much higher than the clocks they put on the cards from factory


Asus ROG 5870 894 mhz

My stock ATI 5870 oc'd to 956 mhz core

Thread Starter 
Sadly I could not convince him to wait frown.gif but this build will satisfy him and he says he'll probably just upgrade it in the future, so all is well. But thanks guys.

Hey I also have the Q8300 and its at 3GHz and I'm planning on buying the asus 660ti 2gb I read online that it won't be a bottleneck if I over clock to 3GHz or more

I'd save some money and get a 7870, or a 7950

I like Nvidia but they over price their gpus compared to similar performance AMD (the way Intel used to do when the AMD cpu was faster but Intel had the name recognition)
