Sapphire 7850 2gb OC or Reference 7950 3gb OC Boost

Ive read the single fan reference design can be loud and run excessively hot. Seeing how i can get each of these cards within 15$ of each other, am i better suited going for the 7950?

These are the two cards in question, although not where the price comparison comes from. Thanks

That MSI is not really reference, just a little better though...

Anyway, the performance difference between those cards are MASSIVE. Get the 7950. Hell you can stick a nice aftermarket cooler on it and it would STILL be cost effective.. LOL

An aftermarket cooler can potentially allow that card to surpass an HD7970 GHz by OCing it to 1200MHz +.
