Sapphire 7850 OC
 
Has anybody found any websites selling these? Every one I've found is sold out, except for one that is selling it at $40 above retail.

The reviews say that even though it is overclocked it still runs very cool and the HSF they use on it is barely audible.

EDIT: Newegg just got it.

It may be worth it to hold off just a little bit to see if AMD adjusts the prices on their lineup.

Nah I've already been waiting three years, I've waited long enough.

Just got it today. Something I'm wondering though, do you still get the overclocked speeds with the reference drivers? Or do they need to be modified?

It should work with any drivers as these stock overclocks are usually coded into the cards ROM/BIOS.

I recently ordered the Sapphire 7870 OC, can't wait! :captnkill:

You can check for yourself though easily by running GPU-Z for instance.

I am very thoroughly impressed with this card. I threw the overclocks to the max and with OCCT running the GPU stress and Prime95 stressing the CPU at the same time, it maxes out at 77C.

With it clocked the way I have it, it performs great, you can't even hear the fan, and my case is barely warm to the touch. Best video card I have ever purchased.

Was thinking about picking one of these up. Newegg ebay has then for $239 right now as well.

I'm sure it'll be a huge upgrade form my 5770, but I was wondering if there's anything else on the horizon or price cuts anyone's heard in the near future?
