i love sapphire, hasnt screwed me over once, i saw an msi mode llike it, but didnt get as good a review, or as high of max memory clocks, it was $30 more expensive also, it was an msi, wasnt sure if it was the best option. i liked the dual fan and increased memory and core clocks for OCing
if you are willing to take a look tell me what you think, my biggest problem is, i was gunna buy it late summer, dk if it will be around that long, for all i know they may have re continued the card i wanted, but i think its more likely they will all be gone
here is the card Newegg.com - MSI R6970 Lightning Radeon HD 6970 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
comparing the two cards side by side there is a bit of a difference in clocks, which isnt the end all be all, but with ati drivers
, they arent helping to produce faster speeds like nvidias are, i still prefer ati despite this in my findings
