There are 3 versions of both Dual and Strix. The base versions both have non A chips. Both cards Have a 'Advanced' and 'OC' skews, both of these skews have the 'A' chip. The Strix Offers just 37W extra power limit. Both are relatively low limits and that's a lot of extra cash per Watt. When overclocking, your'e likely to reach power limitations long before temp limits. The only other thing I'd consider is noise. The Strix's 3 fans and beefier heatsink will be quieter at the same temp when compared to the dual but not by a lot. Given the options of the these two cards, I'd go for the Dual OC but given the choice of the market, I'd choose neither. Please don't ask what I'd get as I still deciding.. Posted a question on the official owners thread.. It's a case of finding the cheapest board capable of competently handling the best Bios as I intend flash and water cool.
