I would not buy a card for them if you ask me, but that's all a matter of personal preference.

I think the Sapphire 7970 is it! smile.gif

HIS HD 7950 Iceq x2 boost is a good option. one of the best HD 7950 cards. unlocked voltage. good cooler. reference HD 7970 PCB with 8 + 6 pin power. 311 cm long. so check if it will fit in your case. average overclocks 1150 -1200 mhz. HD 7950 is 5% slower than HD 7970 at same clocks.
