If you have to go 7870 go for powercolor Vortex II if you can get with higher speed.
The 7870XT might be the better choice though.

I never had any issue with sapphire and power color when it comes to radeon that's why lol Actualy it has high clocks and I love the look and the custom cooler with it.

I know this forum is old, but if your in the gpu market again, check out the Sapphire 7870 oc ghz edition! I have been running a couple of those in crossfire and I love the performance, and they are very overclockable, even though they come factory overclocked. You can grab one off of newegg for sub 200.00 if you watch for deals, and if you don't mind lightly used, Ebay has them for around 175.00.
