So is the gigabyte version superior to the sapphire edition? I'm sorry if I'm asking dumb questions I really just don't know how to tell one video card from the next besides the VRAM. Thank you guys for all your help.
Sapphire is basically AMD's go-to guy, like EVGA is nVidia's. Gigabyte has pretty good build quality and cooling, but Sapphire has longevity and is going to be the reference model for AMD's cards 9 times out of 10.
