get the stock one..Sapphire's card are kinda in the low cost catagory and since he's getting a card that's over $300, mine as well pay that little more for some better garentee + quality :)

The only difference is the hsf and ramsinks if there are any. All the 1st gen 9700 went out are all built by ATi...So there is no feature or speed difference.

where do u get that info, since gigabyte has made another order for chips (according to rage3d). i wouldn't buy a low end card. the memory on the cards is sometimes slower...not allowing much room for overclocking. i just don't go for em unless it's a reputable co like hercules or gigabyte

any non 'pro' card is clocked slightly lower than the 'pro' card, but those are essentially the same thing.

I've used gigabyte products in the past and i've ALWAYS been happy with them.

Yea, I wasn't thinking when I typed that out. I was wondering if anybody that has the Gigabyte ATi 9700 wanted to trade for my regular old ATi 9700. I'm very impressed with my Gigabyte mobo, it kicks ass.:D
