Which R9 280X from this model is the most recommended ?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am getting an NANOXIA Deep Silence 1 Case and I really like my computer to be quiet:
GIGABYTE Radeon R9 280X Windforce X3 3GB
Sapphire Radeon R9 280X OC 3GB GDDR5
Sapphire Radeon R9 280X VAPOR-X OC 3GB GDDR5

The Sapphire Radeon VAPOR-X R9 270X is the best of the listed GPU's. It has the most efficient cooler, ability to reach higher OC's, and looks great too.

wrong title... looking for 280X, don't seem to have the ASUS model here in Israel... mainly just GB / Sapphire and abit of MSI here and there...

IMO you can't go wrong with any 280X. I personally have a MSI 280X and I'm very happy with it but if I had to choose out of your three listed I would pick the Gigabyte. The Gigabyte has a three year warranty (rather than the 2 from Sapphire), good aftercare service imo and a decent cooler.

Is the Gigabyte a Rev 1.0 or Rev 2.0?

Sapphire 280x would be the quietest in that list. Sapphire makes the OEM stuff for AMD and is always a good choice.

From what is listed, sapphire vapor-x, the XFX B.E is great
post #8 of 9
+1 for Sapphire Vapor-X.

You won't be disappointed.

Be aware, however, that with the 280X there are actually TWO "Sapphire Vapor-X" cards.

There is this one, the older one:





Then there's the newer "Vapor-X Tri-X" version:





Obviously the one with three fans, the Vapor-X Tri-X, is better.

The other one is basically the 7970 Vapor-X with a backplate. The 7970 version of that card had no backplate.

Either of the cards are gonna be great though, having owned 3 7970 Vapor-X and 4 R9 290 Vapor-X (Tri-X) myself.

Only a huge Sapphire fanboy like me would be able to tell you about these two cards being different, though they are both sold as a "280X Vapor-X".
