Awesome! Thanks guys


I only worried because there are only 33 reviews for that card on newegg and 4/5 stars.... doesn't seem bad but not stellar. But what does newegg reviews matter

Sapphire has been the class of AMD cards for forever.

You're not going to find a 5/5 with 30+ reviews on anything practically anywhere.

Someone is going to get a DOA part and write a ****ty 1/5 review about how brand "X" is trash tier and how they will never buy again from them because people are idiots.

I would rate sapphire the middle of the bunch.

asus and msi I'd take over sapphire all day every day.

You're also paying about 25% more just for the name. Sapphire puts quality stuff out at a reasonable price.
