post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
am thinking of http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ASUS-2GB-RADEO...ht_1430wt_1140

but is it better to buy msi or something else instead of asus?
also do u suggest me buying a different version of ATI?
thanks

I would suggest to get a refrence card so you can unlock it to a 6970. I also have Sapphire, and nothing has gone wrong. I thin most companys are nearly the same besides warranty.

Either this one or the MSI Twin Frozr III. The one in your link takes up 3 slots. Please be aware of that and good luck

Asus still has reference models and is a great vendor to boot.

I would recommend you stay away from XFX as you might not get a reference PCB even if the model suggests so.
