even in 7000 series graphics card?are you still gonna choose HIS? here are my options a Powercolor 7870 PCS+ Myst edition vs HIS 7870 running on default clock still HIS?please help
 
I would point towards ASUS, and Sapphire. I have heard bad things about HIS with there coolers how they aren't anything special and with Powercolor they could be okay I suppose. If I were to deceide on the two I would say it probably wouldn't matter much honestly they are both reference type cards according to both cards reviews on newegg they say both cards are quiet and cool which the 7000 cards don't run hot. However I would feel more secure with HIS I suppose you aren't in the market for a aftermarket cooler so I can't see it being terrible.

^+1 for Sapphire , asus and gigabyte, overall they have the best cards.

Sapphire only makes Amd cards but they have a good track record, although some of this years models have had a bit of instability issues.

Powercolor has improved and overall make some solid cards, however a while back they were caught using cheap capacitors on their cards, and they are not the best. Between powercolor and HIS I would go with HIS, but consider some of the other brands. Also take a look at some of the non-reference models with custom cooling. What GPU do you plan on taking exactly?

Hope this helps!
