    XFX 7950 DD Black Edition or MSI 7950 Twin Frozr 3

    Hello, i'm getting a new GPU and I want a 7950 but not sure which one to get, right now it's between an XFX 7950 DD Black edition and an MSI 7950 Twin Frozr 3. Both are around the same price there's only about £10 difference. Any opinions or suggestions will be appreciated.

    Re: XFX 7950 DD Black Edition or MSI 7950 Twin Frozr 3

    XFX warranty sucks, so i'd go for the MSI card. I decided to buy the HIS Radeon 7950 IceQ Turbo (with boost) as it's supposed to be one of the coolest and quietest 7950's out there according to the reviews... It's been great so far and comes already overclocked at 925Mhz (i have no need to increase this, although they can be overclocked very easily ).
