As the title suggests, I am wondering which of the following graphics cards is best:

XFX HD 7950 : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-video-card-fx795atn...
Gigabyte HD 7950 : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-video-card-gvr...
Sapphire HD 7950 : http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-111...

I will be doing mainly serious gaming with one of these cards.
I am wondering which one is best overall for:
Performance
Noise
Heat

Thanks for your time

That review was before the Boost edition cards came out, and you must take into consideration that some of them were running faster than stock speeds.

I'm using a Sapphire 7950 OC/Boost, and passively overclocked to 1050/1450 which is similar to 7970 Ghz speeds. Didn't even need to increase core voltage. Runs stable and doesn't exceed 60 degrees C at full load.

Now with news of Gigabyte and XFX voltage locking their cards I would avoid buying AMD cards from them.
