    Found some reviews , the msi is highly thought of . The Xfx has crappy support .

    Check out the noise level comparison ! Msi = 1 Xfx =5 . And for what it's worth HDTV output only avalable with the Msi.


    Hey who's BFG ? Notice their core and memory clocks , are some what higher !

    hmmm.. is that 50 MHz gonna make a difference from MSI and XFX?

    actually i might get the BFG... it has the lowest temperature and the highest benchmarking for FPS.

    I don't know, you can over clock your self ! But read all the reviews ,I found them very interesting . Like the Bfg OC ! Ya the Bfg is factory over clocked . and has a life time warranty , best in the indusrty !

    How can anyone really tell if noise is a significant factor from that report? All you get is a subjective level 1 for the MSI board compared to a 4 for the BFG offering and a 5 for the XFX. Couldn't they hire a sound meter FFS.

    Did anyone check the OC benchies? The XFX outstripped the BFG each time when OCed, but without revealing the resulting temps it seems a little meaningless. Still, I suppose you can draw the conclusion that the boards were stable at the quoted speeds so perhaps temp isn't that important. I wouldn't want to bet on it though.

    Still, a useful comparison, but I guess I'll probably be going for a PCI-E board next so it's not going to really affect me.
