But also this card seems to be the cheapest w/ the rebate vs like the windforce or xfx.. i could go down to a 7950, but i had a 6950.. i want to be on that XX70 platform for once lol
You really do not want anything from XFX now.
Horror stories and poor cooling performance for the price they charge
(Sapphire has much better cooling while being cheaper, i'm talking about the Dual-X which are the standard versions. Generally if you want a quieter GPU a Dual-X is quieter than a Vapor-X. I know that because i have a 7850 OC 2GB and my friend has a 7770 Vapor-X which is significantly louder!)
