Which 7970 GHZ to get? - Page 2

Damn I'm getting more replies here then expected, but that's good cause it helps me find the right card faster. tongue.gif

@rdr09: For what reason is it despised? You're the first one here to mention this, so I'm a bit surprised.

I'll probably go for the HIS then, since it's a bit cheaper and there's a store at a respectable distance from here who sells one. Gonna check a few reviews first ofcourse, gotta have to be sure!

go with the HIS but not the GHz edition. the savings can go for upgrades in the future. like i showed you at an earlier post, even a 7950 can turn into a 7970 GHz within 2 minutes using Afterburner even without any voltage adjustments.

but if you have a budget for a 7970, then go with the HIS 7970 non-GHz edition. you would not see the difference. I had a Gigabyte 7950 before and that thing is quiet. i mean i had to check the fans were running the first time. of course, all this small fans will make some kind of noise at higher speeds (over 50%) but if they are at stock and you've got good air flow - it should not bother you one bit.

my games settings for my 7950 stock before are exactly the same for my 7970 stock. BF3 Maxed at 1080, C3 High with 4MSAA, and other games like C2 maxed as well.
