7870 Myst vs 7870 Ghz

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently got the Myst on a deal from NE and was highly impressed with the performance but Noise/Heat is definitely is pretty bad, I'm looking at about 80'C and close to 100'c on VRM, Even I might lose some performance I just think the longevity and less noise may be worth it. What does the OCN think?

OP if you want to return the myst go with a MSI R9 270X gaming . very low noise. excellent cooler.

if you can spend a bit more get the MSI GTX 670 power edition. excellent deal on a significantly more powerful card.

It's hard to jump into cards that are at $200 mark, since my Myst only costs me 170 up front 40 back thru rebate.

if you have used up the rebate and got money back then newegg won't take your card back. you will have to sell it and that means you will take a slight loss. you could wait and see if the sapphire hd 7950 comes back in stock. put yourself on autonotify
