My last sapphire card 7870 started to artifact after a few weeks ( a huge problem sapphire had with that batch of card) Is that problem still current in there new line up? I know with sapphire they didnt solve the issue till it was 7970

I can't speak about Sapphire's specifically, but as was mentioned earlier, these 7970/280x's are pretty sensitive to heat ESPECIALLY when overclocked!!! Some of these other users here I would imagine are NOT setting up customer fan profiles when overclocking, which easily explains why some users are having issues with their cards. I would suggest if you do decide to get one and if you decide to do any overclocking, DEFINITELY setup a custom fan profile to keep your card running as cool as possible, and that will also keep artifacts to a minimum as well. I pretty much keep my fans running at 50% all the time and I never have any issues unless I push my overclock to hard in graphically demanding games.

I can run a stable overclock with absolutely zero issues up to 1240/7200mhz on Battlefield 4 multiplayer for example, but can only go up to 1220/7000 in the Witcher 2.

Oh yeah, I use the Witcher 2 as a benchmark, and to test stability with my overclocks. I was running Heaven and Valley and Firestrike like everyone else swears by to test my graphics card for stability, but while the card would pass them all with flying colors at say 1240/7200/mhz even looping for 30-40 minutes, it would artifact within the first 20 seconds of a cutscene in The Witcher 2 and possibly crash within about 5 minutes of gameplay. Just food for thought I guess...

From all that I've gathered, a well clocked 7970/280x is pretty close to gtx 780 territory in quite a few cases. I would imagine that would get you around 20% more performance at the least with a card that can clock to around 1200mhz as opposed to one around 900mhz, so yeah, I'd say they're worth the extra money unless you decide to step up to the 290...

Do you know how long the Crossfire bridge is on your 280x 100, 107 or 120mm?

I have the same card (two of them in Crossfire)...what are you temps at load? How is your case air flow? Could potentially be an airflow/temp problem.

Also, did you follow the correct procedure for driver install? i.e. remove via control panel, restart, run driver sweeper, restart, install new drivers?

Have you setup a BF4 profile in CCC? Do any of the CCC & BF4 video settings conflict? I used to experience issues with BF3 if I set vsync in CCC & in BF3 video settings...right now all my settings in CCC are application controlled.

However, I think your problem is hardware/driver related, not settings/config related.

The Windforce is 1100/1500 and my version can get to 1200/1750 with stock voltage, the Gigabyte card is a very good one too...it is voltage locked though...the DC2T isn't voltage locked and I think the Toxic & Matrix are also voltage unlocked.

Gigabyte>HIS for sure

Gigabyte core clock is 150mhz higher out the box and boost clock is 100mhz higher (1000/1100 vs 850/1000)
3 year warranty vs 2 year for the HIS
The Gigabyte heatsink and fan design at least to me looks much better than the HIS

The XFX looks pretty nice aesthetically to me, but it just doesn't look like it's going to cool very well for a decent overclock, which is the same issue the HIS would have in my eyes. Personally though, I feel that the Asus DC2T is probably the best all around 280x, as it comes clocked at 1070 at the core and 6400mhz memory, which is quite a bit higher than other 280x's as most others are have memory clocks at 6000mhz. The Matrix plat, while a sweet card, is a space hogging power sucking BEAST. If you could actually find a Sapphire toxic anywhere and they weren't so expensive, I'd say it's probably the best 280x money can buy...but you're just $40 short of a 290 at that point (in the US)...

The Gigabyte card is good but like I said it's voltage locked, no matter what you do you cannot unlock voltage control so you're restricted to how far you can push by the the stock voltage.

Mine will get to 1200 core, 1700-1750 memory but it got so hot at those clocks (over 100c in Crossfire) that I did the GPUMOD to water cool them.
