Default Diamond GPU advantages?

If I buy a diamond 6870, what advantages do I gain over the others? Is there any? Is it just prestige/brand name?

If you're just talking about the brand, no. There is NO difference and/or advantage. If you're talking about the XOC version that Diamond has, then yes, you'll have a slight advantage over normal clocked 6870's. Honestly, I would much rather go for XFX over Diamond. Much better warranties. Lifetime of XFX > 2 years of Diamond.

XFX FTW! I have a 5770, and love it. Warranties are awesome as well.

Hey, thanks guys. I honestly thought XFX might be the worst brand, because it is the cheapest on newegg. But honestly, I'll probably end up with the XFX. thanks!
