What are peoples thought about the ASUS DC II card vs the MSI Twin Frozr IV. I've always loved the build grade of MSI...

Well, I have a week or so before I order mine.
Looking for the best 280x, with a black pcb (Sapphire blue one, wont cut it).
I don't really care about the cooler, its going under water.
So I figure, I will lurk around and see which ones will be best.

I wish we would hear more on the 290!?!?!

So is the Sapphire Toxic just not available yet to order or is it sold out?!?!?
post #74 of 9745
I believe I saw it available earlier today so I guess just sold out.

The MSI cards cooler isn't that great according to TechPowerup's review. VRM was overheating and temps were high. Link.

Saddening..Just missed it then.. question now is... Do I get a Asus DCIIT, Matrix Platinum, or wait for the Toxic to come back in stock...

I'm a little hesitant about getting the toxic as I've read that it's voltage locked and you can't surpass it with any sort of oc software.
