So I am looking at getting a proper video card.I was wondering which fan design and overall design of video card is better: with the ban on the side or in the middle. Here are two examples.

hmm..the overview of both video cards are similary the same and as their functions and how they operate..id say those are two great video cards. but id give the edge to the "DIAMOND 6870PE51GV2 Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card" or has you call it "the one with the middle" for me the design stands out and although it a couple of dollars more expensive then the other video card u could find it more resistant in how its built and the functionality of it. And sometimes the good things are not the only ones that are the least expensive. :thumbup2:

The more expensive one uses Diamond's own cooler whereas the cheaper one uses the reference cooler design which isn't that great.

I'd rather pick a HD 6870 from XFX or Sapphire.

Great design, great support.
