Depends how long you want to keep the card as to whether it is worth it. I'll take the Vapor-X any day over the Dual-X. Better components, a thicker Custom PCB, better VRM, Vapor Chamber cooling are worth it to me. But then again its your money. Those things really do not impact gaming performance just long term reliability , stability and having the parts to allow the GPU core to reach its maximum potential. The GPU core is only going to give up what it is capable of giving.
