Gigabyte vote from me... why ? i like their cooler better...but that is just me...
A very important factor is who uses the best ram chips... and in these editions i do not know who biggrin.gif
Perhaps someone else knows

Both of them are awesome variants of HD 7950. But I have personally preferred MSI for few reasons, namely I found cooling to be a little more efficient as they use really good heat sinks and heat pipes and they simply look better IMO rolleyes.gif

Also correct me if I am wrong, but wont a card having 3 cooling fans consume a tad bit more power than one with 2? (Excuse me if that sounded foolish, LOL biggrin.gif)

Finally my vote goes to MSI thumb.gif

Agreed. Also, for a while (not sure if this is still the case) the Gigabyte card was about $40 cheaper

And the GV looks pretty awesome with all the fans going

For me neither!!

I looked at a lot of cards before purchasing a pair of Powercolor 7950 PCS+ cards. Some very good reviews, very good cooler that runs oh so quiet.. Cards have unlocked voltage and clock very well.

All this is a huge seller, but the big one is a Black PCB??? MSI uses a very ugly brown PCB and that Sapphire blue does not work for me... lol
At the time of my purchase the cards were $209 with a $30 MIR?

Read in a thread yesterday (unsourced) that Asus and Sapphire are using Hynix, Gigabyte and MSI are using Elpida. In that case, the Asus or the Sapphire would be the better picks.

On the cooler alone I'd pick the MSI, I've got that same cooler on my 570 and at least on that card it does a great job with temps barely over 60 and 35 at idle, and it's quiet.
