Asus- http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-7790-Direct-Graphics-Card/...
Gigabyte- http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-R7790-PCI-E-Graphics-C...

I wnat to know which one is better and why, I dont mind personal opinion but I want some facts too, e.g. a link to the benchmarks of the same game on the same settings and resolution etc. But yeah, an answer asap would really be appreciated. Thanks!

Now i am using 2 Asus HD 7790 direct cu II OC, i have no problem with it, i like the cooler fan. iIt has memory clock of 6400 mhz while gigabyte has 6000mhz. But gigabyte has ultra durable 2. its hard to find out which is better one coz i only using asus. and they are both AMD 7790.
I play Tomb Raider 2013 with 46 fps ave(single) 93fps ave(dual) ultra setting 1080p witout overclock.

You are better off with GTX 660 for the same price. It's equivalent to 7870.

Okay, thanks but which one has better:
performance:
cooling (i ask because the gigabyte is more open and seems to be less covered):
oh god damn im so confused, is there really that big of a deal between the two? Also, if you could answer me, why is the sapphire 1gb gddr5 like £10 more expensive? Is it better or just not on as good of a sale. Anyway I wanna get this card to run bf4 so should either of this be able to run it/

You want more VRAM and a wider bus to run bf4. Get 7870 2gb or gtx 660

sorry i meant about the sapphire being £10 cheaper, are the asus and gigabyte versions that much better? Just remember that budget is a huge factor, so if it's a only gonna get me 2 fps more in a game by paying £10 extra then I dont want it

Yes... It depends on what you want to play in a game settings. (High, Ultra or Ultimate settings) I tell you, with my Asus 7790, im not satisfied to play on ultimate settings of TR 2013 with a single card.
Check also the others suggestions here before you buy, ok?
So in the end, you dont have any regrets.
