First Ever Gaming PC, GPU decision help!

So I am trying to decide between 2 graphics cards right now, they are both the same price but one of them has like 3 or 4 dollars more shipping... Anyway, these 2 cards go for about $250 on because i live in Canada. I will be doing lots of gaming and rendering out videos with sony vegas for my youtube channel.


The Sapphire HD 7950 3gb 384-bit GDDR5 PCI-Express 3.0 x16


The HIS Iceq HD 7950 BOOST clock (sapphire also has a boost clock) 3gb 384-bit GDDR 5PCI-Express 3.0 x16


So thanks in advance for replying because this question is really buggin me.

Also I'm pretty set in stone on this gpu series because the price, you just can't beat it! However you can recommend a card, but like i said, set in stone! haha.

So thanks for replying, and if you did and I'm glad you could help me out :)

I'm pretty sure the HIS iceq isn't voltage locked so i would go after that one.

oh good, thank you for replying! it's been bothering me trying to decide between the two :P I will go with the his because i've heard the cooler is great, and apparently not voltage locked, not that i will be doing much or any over clocking until way later on, who knows...
