Picking a new graphics card. Help appreciated! - Page 2

If you can afford a 7870 XT get one.

If you want the most power get the 7870 if you want silence get the Asus 7850, you won't really notice the difference, just overclock the Asus 7850 and it should be equal to the 7870.

I have seen that the reference 7790 chipset is even more silent than the reference 7850, looking at Anandtech benches.

ASUS 7790 would be good i guess.
