    Best Radeon 4870 for an Asus M3A78-T?

    I'm getting an Asus M3A78-T, what is the best Radeon 4870 512MB to pair with it? I'm not too familiar with most of the ATI brands.

    They are all the same... some might come with different coolers on them but thats about it... also the warrenty of the different brands will vary too... so just go with one thats a good price and has a good warrenty...
    i5 4670K @ 4.5GHz with Corsair H60
    MSI Z87-G45 GAMING
    8GB Corsair DDR3 1800MHz
    MSI 7990 Liquid Cooled
    850w Akasa Venom
    1TB WD and 750GB WD Cavier Green
    Samsung SA700D 1920x1080 @ 120Hz

    Any other opinions? How much better would the Asus be compared to the Sapphire?

    Whatever you pick, stay away from the Powercolor PCS+ model, it has the annoying "Screen Flicker" bug, you have to set your clock speed manually with Rivatuner to fix it...
