hmm which one should i get

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
so i decided that im going to compleate my spider platform with a 3870..

buut im not sure which brand card to choose. ive narrowed it down to these two brands. the msi version has a 800MHz core clock but i hear the his version has better cooling. i can only spend 189.99 on the card it self before rebates.
