Hi all,
After waiting for Fermi to come out, I don't believe I like the high heat issue. I was looking at the GTX470. Now I'm looking at the XFX Radeon HD5870 card ($439.00) and then I saw this Vapor-X card (Pic Included) at a different place for $20.00 more ($459.00) Would this be a better choice for the price? Also I do not know much about the Sapphire brand. XFX has a good warranty and reasonable support. The more I look the more confused I'm getting. :)

From what I've read and heard of the two, the 5870 is the way to go. Either of the 5870's are good and are mostly equivalent. Sapphire is a good brand, I recommend them often. Their "Vapor-X" (Vapor Chamber Cooling Technology) helps keep the card cooler and quieter.

This video will tell you everything about it... HERE. If that doesn't impress you, or you don't care for it, then just go with the standard 5870 from XFX.

Hope that helps. :)

Yes it does. Thanks for the help.:) I've been waiting so long because of Fermi to come out. I want a new video card first, than I am going to build a new platform in a while. I want to see what happens with LGA 1156 and LGA 1366 first.
