    Okay so I have a major rebuild under way and would love some help from people if they know of some good deals kicking around.

    I've gone around, checked the usual (PC Part Picker, Google Shopping, Scan, Ebuyer, Novatech etc) I am having trouble finding a decent price for the board without being killed on shipping, dab's price on this seems a little (touch high)

    damn... I am just ordering from Novatech right now.

    Isn't that the lower clock version non Vapor X?


    Edit: My bad... I didn't put I was looking at the Vapor X, I was looking for something to match the clocks of my 7970 Vapor X (will crossfire them) so looking at 1050/1500 clocks (ish)

    It is but take a look at the reviews, the DualX is still a great cooler and they overclock well.

    Edit: From what I have seen pretty much every 280X will do 1050 without a sweat.

    Thanks... I am swinging on the fence about the card (my current 7970 is being RMA and I don't wanna be without for a month then figured I could Xfire after but then it is a lot to spend for 30days of lack of card then Xfire after lol :p

    however I also get 4% cash back from Novatech


    If that card could hit 1100/1500 (which is what my 7970 runs at) I think I'd grab it in a pinch

    The TriX is the same GPU just a different coolers and looking in our reviews section that one did 1165, google around to get a feel for its performance.
