Thread Starter 
right so im getting a new card on Thursday and im a little undecided on what to purchase, im coming from a 560ti so im looking for the best step up from that but i dont want to go beyond $300 ideally something below that would be great.

I agree, an HD7950 is the best option in your price range. The 660ti would also be a good option, although an HD7950 will perform better.

Usually the manufacturer prints the branding on the back of the PCB too.

normally the AMD name and logo is prined above the PCI-E connector on reference design cards. also there is a PCB number above the PCI-E connector which you can see in the newegg image gallery 109-C38137-00 . you can find this number mentioned in ekwb's full cover waterblock for reference HD 7950.

http://www.ekwb.com/news/131/19/

"We have completed internal testing of our newest EK-FC7950 water block, built specificaly for the AMD Radeon HD 7950 graphics cards based of AMD 109-C38137-00 PCB. Once again we have managed to manufacture the highest performance (both hydraulic and thermal wise) water cooling product."
