    guessing ill be the devil's advocate if i ask why not nvidia? xD
    most important for amd gpu's is to stay away from XFX those are notorious for high failure rates.

    picked sapphire in the poll

    MSI. I've been using the Hawk series which is awfully quiet and very cool. The cooling on it is superb so you can max it out over time by overclocking if you need to.

    No reason buying the normal 7870 anymore, now that they released the 7870 Tahiti LE.

    7870 price, 7950 or even more, power.

    Such as this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...%20tahiti%20le

    The one with the best price.
    You, you'll regret what you have done this day, I will make you regret ever being born, you're going to wish you never left your mother's womb, where it was warm and safe and wet, I am going to show you pain you never knew existed, you're going to see a whole new spectrum of pain, like a Rainbow!

    Uh, I'd take Gigabyte over either of those in both scenarios.

    I agree with this though I prefer the looks of the 3 slot ASUS DirectCU cooler.

    XFX is decent in general, but had massive issues this generation. If you end up going with a 79xx card, they still may be worth it for the lifetime warranty. They also don't void it when you remove the cooler. Pretty sure it's only the black edition cards though.
