Sapphire HD 7950 OC Graphics Card

With the HD 7970 already claiming the King of the Hill title, you know that the title comes a tall price tag. So if you are like me and know you can get some of that awesome speed and features for less money then you need to look at the SAPPHIRE HD 7950 OC.

First Look

Coming out just a short time after the HD 7970 is the next powerful card from SAPPHIRE, the HD 7950 OC Edition. 
Delivered from the factory with a 11% overclock over the standard HD 7950 you get an instant power boost over just about any card you may currently have. Equipped with 3 GB’s of GDDR5 RAM and plenty of extras it will be very hard to pass up this special edition card.

The front of the box is decorated with most of the special features that makes this card what it is. 

 

One trade mark from SAPPHIRE is that their video cards are always packaged to take any kind of beating from delivery services you can rest assure that your new purchase is in one piece and ready to go.

Another trade mark from SAPPHIRE is the great supply of the cables, cords, connectors and such that come with their cards. Looking at this one we can see what I am talking about. You get two six pin power connectors in case you do not have any, the Crossfire ribbon, a DVI-VGA adapter, DVI-Display port, HDMI-Displayport, and a HDMI cable.
