Neither. What is your budget? You will likely be better off buying a 7790 or 7850.

If you spent $1000 on the rest of the components and only have a $100 budget for the GPU then this is either not a gaming machine or you didn't balance your system and spent too much on other components.

Sapphire HD 7790 is currently $115 after a $10 rebate.

They perform about equal to a 7790 and consumes around 2X the power for one.
