XFX? Ive always thought they were one of the best manufactures is something wrong with their cards and voltage control. Curious because I plan on buying a 6950

Go with the gigabyte and use saphire's Trixx to adjust the voltage ( the gigabyte has better cooling)

I just read your other thread and before you send you card back you should try Trixx first to see if you can adjust the voltage, you should be able to.
