  1. I was just wondering if there was a difference between an ATI Radeon and a Sapphire Radeon.

    The difference is the manufacturer. One is made by ati, the other by sapphire. They use the same graphics core(like a 9600 ati is the same core as a sapphire 9600), but each mfg can use whatever layout/parts they like to make it. Ati makes the cores. Sapphire uses the cores to make their cards(they might use a different type of memory, or a different type of fan etc.).

    o alright thanks, so from what i understand is that there isnt a difference really, right, i am thinking of it kind of like a soda from the store...there are your name brand ones like pepsi and Mt. Dew(my favorite), then you have your off brand cheap ones.....right?
