3870 help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ive been looking at a bunch on 3870's on newegg and they all look the same but when i look up benchmarks and reviews there isnt much of a difference. Is there one that is better then the others or are they all just about the same?
so far http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102732 has gotten my attention anyone has any suggestions id appreciate it

Well they all have the same GPU in them. If you want the best performer of the 3870's, just find the one with the highest clock speeds.

HIS and Sapphire are probably your best bet. That one you have linked is the atomic edition with a single slot cooler. There really is no other difference between that one and the more common double slot coolers save for price.


My top pick since it's on sale.

The atomic edition does have a slightly better cooler that takes up less space. But if you plan on doing some serious overclocking or buying more than two, than you should just save a few bucks and buy a normal one.
