Gigbayte or Sapphire? - Page 3

post #21 of 24

Damn guys, Sapphire 270X Dual-X with BF4 on sale for €159, is that worth it for the price? It's their lower end card, not the TOXIC. I can afford a better one but at that price and with BF4 bundled, is that a deal I shouldn't pass up?

you can just OC it to possibly reach or at least come close, to toxic clocks.(even if you dont OC it, it'll probably just be a 4-6fps difference) its a good deal thumb.gif

I ended up going with the Dual-X, it should be here in a week, I'll get back to you guys with benchmark and overclock results, how exciting!

Loving the Dual-X, it's amazing. Completely maxes Titanfall and Battlefield 3 at 60fps. Managed to get it to 1200MHz core and it passed Unigine and Furmark, but it seems to have some problems with overclocking, it will pass very tough stress tests but then BSOD immediately in certain games. I'll leave it at stock for now, it's more than enough.
