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...

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...
