Yeah I nabbed my Sapphire for 259.99 before they jumped the price up. Otherwise I would have waited for the HIS.

i don't think there is a difference between the sapphire and HIS.... both are rated at the same clock speeds

the reason i want a HIS is because i have owned a couple before and i like their customer support
also i noticed that the HIS still has the half life sticker on it, does this mean it comes with the black box??
because that would be great for me lol
does the sapphire come with it as well?
