Default Re: Help with picking out a graphics card for my first build

The only real difference is the warranty... 2 year vs. Lifetime.

This card would beat both of them performance wise, and has a DOUBLE LIFETIME warranty.

Newegg.com - XFX HD-687A-ZNFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Also, please refrain from making 2 threads about this same topic. We were discussing the cards in the thread directly below this one.
