Here in SA asus and gigabyte is just so much more expensive than the rest of the brands and there is no real performance difference UNLESS it is a SOC or OC version. But then you can get the SOC or OC version of the cheaper brands aswell. Usually I prefer MSI twin frozr ii or iii OC cards or MSI lightning OC cards. They are great cooled cards and performs like a beast. Out of that list of 6870's I would go with the gigabyte SOC card. That is nice cooled card and highly overclocked so it will perform great.

To be honest it is all much ado about nutting, sure different components are used and build quality ( for lack of a better word) is different between manufacturers but its all pedantic and inconsequential normally costing you a few extra shinnies in the process.


I own a Pallit3D 2gb VRAM GTX 560TI and a Inno3D OC'd 1GB GTX 560Ti both considerably less than the MSI/Gigabyte and Asus branded equivilants and the Inno3D got rave reviews. If you are a brand pony then consider EVGA, Gainward, MSI (GTX 580 Lightning Hawk, GTX 560/570 Twin Frozr), ASUS, Gigabyte, XFX and Sapphire.

Cheaper manufacturers; HIS, Powercolor, Leadtek, Pallit3d,inno3d.

long short of it, a GPU brand is as inconsequential as whether it is nvidia or amd, GPU performance is by and large equal across the board. The choice on brands in GPU area is less pertinant than say the CPU field.

that not right at all, you cant even compare asus DirectCUII/MSI hawk or twinfrozr III/GigaByte Windforce x3 to a stock palit/sparkle/inno3d cooling, you can see the diffrence in overclocking ,the tempetures,the noise,the dust filtering and the power consumption. sometimes its worth to spend the extra cash and buy a card with an aftermarket cooling a costum PCB(but not gigabyte, they have that wierd bluish PCB that can really crap up the style of your pc)

I had two 8800 GTX's alphadog editions from XFX running SLI in me ol Core2 Duo build, they are 5 years old and running games easily, XFX in short make excellent GPU's and PSU's, higher end gaming component manufacturer, I would buy a XFX before an ASUS or Gigabyte. MSI on the other hand the TWINFROZRS are amazing, EVGA also top stuff.

I didn't say buy cheaper manufacturers, I also didn't say it is the same performance but comparible performance to the major manufacturers. Overclocking a GPU is one way of making things go pew in a hurry. Simple look after your system and the environment by a reference card, overclocking beyond 50Mhz on GPU is catastrophic, in general I advocate no overclocking at all but that is for a different thread.

Long and short, ASUS and Gigabyte are only worthwhile if you buy high end, both have mediocre mid and low end products and should be avoided. MSI strike the balance between mid and high perfectly. EVGA and XFX are specialists and make high quality components.

Thanks Reaper :lol:

The MSI Hawk series is good, its a 6870 which will run pretty well, may be pricy but it should do the trick.

Not a bad card. He should compare the price of the gigabyte soc with the msi hawk. Both are overclocked, but the gigabyte is more overclocked and it has the 3 fan system. Runs very cool. I love msi, but I try to think about the price performance ratio. If those cards cost the same, the gigabyte will be better in my opinion.

Gigabyte is the higher spec, marginally but more expensive. I think it looks stupid too, the MSI card looks so much more tidy.
