Some of the differences are as: -

Memory speed of DDR3 is 800 MHz whereas for GDDR5 is 1000 MHz
Memory bandwidth of DDR3 is 25.6GB/s whereas for GDDR5 is 64 GB/s
Recommended Screen Size for DDR3 is 1366x768 and for GDDR5 is 1440x900

Version with GRRD5 is faster than the standard version of DDR3.

There are many OC versions of both in the market. Version with GDDR5 is faster one hence recommended.

Happy Hunting.

Sorry dear, Comparison above was of Radeon one not Sapphire. If you are on budgetary considerations buy DDR3 version, otherwise go for 7000 series. This comparison and user reviews are strange. One user has mentioned it to be a PCIe 3 where the specs are clearly mentioning it to be PCIe 2.
