    Whats the difference?

    So I want this:
    MSI Radeon HD 7870 2GB Video Card

    But on PC Part Picker it offers me this version:

    MSI Radeon HD 7870 2GB Video Card (R7870 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC) - $267

    and this version:

    MSI Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB Video Card (R7870-2GD5T/OC) - $189.00

    Before I could have bought the card (MSI Radeon HD 7870 2GB Video Card) for $179

     


    So whats the difference and why can't I find that card anymore? There's only the Ghz Edition one from Amazon thats $189...

    ^^ You''re looking at two 7850's

    OP;

    MSI Global ? Graphics Card - R7870 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC

    That's the $267 option


    MSI Global ? Graphics Card - R7870-2GD5T/OC

    That's the $189 option.

    I would grab the cheaper one, spec wise they are exactly the same, they just use different coolers.

    If you are planning on spending about 250$ id get or the 7950 or the r9 280x for a bit more

    That's why I recommended the cheaper option because he only wanted to spend $179...

    A GHz Edition will usually run you more than $10 Extra, so it's worth it in that regard, and in actuality, it's more powerful than the $267 anyway.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.
