This is the only info the site gives me.. No specs, so if you can tell between the codes in the bracket whether this is a good model, please say as it is really cheap and I'll order it in a few days!

That one is £50 more than the one I posted :/.. If I was in that price bracket I could go for a 7950.!

The ones I posted are £160

Aw, I love my IceQ X. Sapphire's good too, though.

Ah sorry yours isn't the 7870, I don't know if you can get turbo for your model but is there much difference?

^I doubt it has better cooling - even with one fan, the IceQ and IceQ X coolers are legend for being cool and quiet.

I've got my HD 6870 clocked up past the Turbo X version of my card on stock voltage. You can definitely do the same with an HD 7870.

Well all the 7870s from either HIS or sapphire are all clocked at 1000mhz with mem clock of 4800mhz.. But from what I've read, HIS have better cooling but it is louder than sapphire (obviously due to having two fans)

Here are some reviews of the HIS card: http://www.rage3d.com/reviews/video/his_hd7870_iceq_xturbo/index.php?p=1

Sapphire or HIS IceQ X, you'll get great temperatures, overclocking, and noise out of both. Either card would be great - if they're the same price, flip a coin.

Yes. I guess there's not a Turbo X version yet.

I was just saying that there is a Turbo X version of the HD 6870, and I've got mine clocked past its specs.
