Hello!

So, I'm a bit confused about graphics cards. if i search on newegg for "radeon hd 5570",

I get a bunch of different brands of cards. I thought ATI was ATI.:confused:

Are any of them better than others? the specs seem the same, but I'm not sure...

thanks,

Catlover

There are ATI cards made by ATI and then cards with an ATI chipset branded by other companies ("Powered by...").

ok, thanks, and is there any reason to get fan cooling vs passive?
