Sapphire Vapor-X HD 7770 vs. Asus HD 7770

Sapphire: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102993

Asus: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121642

Recently ran into problems with my 6770 so replacing my GPU and PSU. Besides the 10 dollar price difference, is there any notable difference between these two? Like if one stays cooler than the other or if one just has a little more "umpf" than the other? I know the Asus has 2 GB GDDR5, but is that really a big difference?

I also heard that the display drivers for the 7770's have given people grief before with BSOD and crashes and such. Seems like AMD drivers have problems alot of the times. IF that might be a problem should I get a gtx 650 Ti and avoid heartbreak? Any help would be appreciated.

    Don't worry man! I haven't bought it yet! Didn't know the 7850's were at such good prices. As far as budget goes, I'm hesitant to spend any mor than $200 but even that is stretching it to the limit. $150 seems like my good spot.

    Aw man that's a tough one to resist. Even with the rebate, 189 is still a lot to pay up front. GRGRGrgr the choices.
