post #11 of 18
Iam currently in the sam boat iam looking for a 7950 for about 230 dollars. The iceQ card just looks dumb to me. The saphire looks cheap. And XFX ive read nothing but bad things about this company.

Ive been telling quite a few people now, IDK what the difference is but I've now had 3 xfx cards in the last 9 months and all of them work fine. They all overclock more than 15% at stock voltage and all are stable. Now either I'm really lucky, or the cards are just very sensitive to ESD, and my obsessive attention to always being grounded when touching my pc components is the reason I have fewer problems. That the only thing I can think of but I love these cards

I don't buy XFX anything, mostly because I was in on the 680 SLI motherboard fiasco a few years ago. Four RMA's and I finally gave up on throwing good money after bad. Also had their 9800GT card with a lifetime warranty, when it died they sent me a refurbished 6750 with stability issues.

I recently purchased the HIS and it is silent in idle and runs cool under load, I'd recommend it smile.gif
