My System Specs

Default Sapphire or XFX radeon 6870 to crossfire

I have the reference design XFX 6870 currently and am looking to purchase another for crossfire (mainly because i moving to a 1920x1080 monitor from a 1440x900)

The 2 i am thinking about are
XFX - Newegg.com - XFX HD-687A-ZHFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
Sapphire - Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100314-3L Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

I have an ocz zs750 power supply that i purchased to be able to run a crossfire configuration (an upgrade to my gs600) so i should be fine on power. My processor is a 955BE (no overclocked but may be in the future). Note that one of the cards will be on a 2.0 x4 lane, but from my research beforehand i have gathered that the performance hit will not be too noticeable. If i left out any vital information i will be more than happy to provide it, just ask

Also as another question is there any reason not to purchase from amazon? I have a 25 dollar gift credit for amazon that i would like to use but if there is any reason that i shouldnt or any reason to stick with newegg i will just use newegg
