Personally I don't doubt the Giga for a sec.

I have the gigabyte and LOVE it! Super silent, runs really cool temps. Though I haven't OC'd it yet but I'm sure that it will do well in that department :)

I have only ever had to RMA a graphics card once, and the support I received from XFX was awesome. I am pretty much a customer for life!

I hear that's actually a reason to NOT buy ASUS

Seriously though, the ASUS will probably be the quietest, most reliable card of the bunch. IF you can put up with a 3-slot cooler design.

Sapphire is Solid. Best Brand for AMD.

Hey Great Big not kewl not kewl at all :P

But yah I really enjoyed my 7970 tops when they let me test them for a few weeks now I have moved onto the 7870 top's and gotta say I love the 7870.

And sorry no bad blood here but dont go with Sapphire, I have done about 12 RMA's for them in the last few months for forum members and the price of sending them to china is not cheap :( also if they dont have stock they charge me a 15% restocking fee and make me pay the difference towards the newer card :S doesnt EVGA just give you a free one of the better one??

Oh and Asus is everywhere we are always watching... Just like Apple haha

Go with XFX or Asus, For Sapphire I had to send my card to China for RMA. So not to happy about that.
Those are the two Brands I go towards for AMD cards.

I have been singularly unimpressed with ASUS support since they have been unable to provide me with TPM info and availability for my motherboard from the day I got it (that was 3 years ago). And it wasn't just one support department either. I've contacted ASUS support in Canada, US and Taiwan. All of them totally clueless. Fortuantely their motherboards seem of higher quality than their support. Can't speak to their video cards but 3 slots is one too many for me.
