1. Asus Matrix .... if you can find one

2. Saphire Vapor X that is readily availible

I have the Vapor-X but I'm recommending the Dual-X as it has better VRM cooling and the main cooler is said to be just as good as Vapor-X.

the sapphire hd 7970 ghz vapor-x has a more powerful PCB design. dual 8 pin power connectors. 8 phase power design. vapor-x cooler. you can find out about the card more from users who have the card.


at 335 pounds its a very good choice.

I haven't had any issues with Sapphire cards yet. Bought my reference Sapphire 7970 in March 2012, recently attached Accelero Xtreme cooler to it, and my new Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X last week and have yet to have issues with either of them.

Before I got the Vapor-X I tried for a reference MSI, intending to watercool, but it produced artifacts at stock and I had to return it. Can't say I was too sad though, still got the AMD 'never settle' bundle for the old card (sleeping dogs, far cry 3, hitman absolution) along with the new bundle that came with my recent card (bioshock infinite & tomb raider) tongue.gif.

Edit: I'd say go for Sapphire Vapor-X 7970.
