XFX R7950 Double Dissipation Black Edition
High-end video card
More powerful video cards are available at a higher price, but experts say the XFX R7950 Double Dissipation Black is the best all-around choice for gamers looking for a high-end graphics card. The factory overclock lets the card match frame rates set by the next-tier Radeon 7970-based cards, but since this one is based around a 7950 GPU, it uses significantly less power and generates substantially less heat than a Radeon 7950. Experts say the Double D custom cooling system helps to bring temperatures down further. It's possible to overclock the card even more, and XFX backs it with a lifetime warranty. On the downside, the R7950 DDBE is expensive, and you'll need a similarly high-end CPU and other components capable of matching the card's output.
