Sapphire 6870 NR question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I've settled on grabbing a 6870, and I've been thinking about grabbing this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102913 since it happens to have the promo atm.

I just wondered how this compares to the reference version by Sapphire, I looked around and couldn't find a comparison, only vapor/toxic reviews. this will be my first time going red, and just want to make the right choice.

I would say...
That almost looks like the reference model to me.

To me it looks like a reference card with a different cooler...

Ah, I was completely under the assumption that a different cooler was what determined R/NR, but 5 minutes with Google and I'm a slightly less ignorant person. I guess then I need to figure out if that cooler is any good.
