I am now not so sure about the Vapor X. I am hearing good and bad things about it. Bad being that its seems there are a ton of revisions and its pure luck if you get one with unlocked voltage controls? I also am not sure if I like the fact that its bigger than 2 slots(not a 3 slot like the asus, but not a 2 either, kind of in between). Some are saying that it has a bad heatsink design on the vrms(or was it memory?) and that it could cause problems(but I cannot figure out if this was with and older revision or the newest ones).
I am now thinking of getting the 3L sapphire card as its supposedly not voltage locked?
The HIS IceQ X² also that seems to be a generally great card, but I don't know if I am stomach paying an extra 40 bucks JUST to have something that may or may not be "better". No rebate on it like the sapphires.
I swear it feels like I cannot win. It was such an easy choice when I got my 5850, this time around it seems like most of them have "issues". Or perhaps these "issues" are just gamers who are complaining about little things that don't really actually matter. I cant decide.
