  1. What is your resolution? If you play on a 1080p monitor, you won't have to get the 4GB one. But, since these cards are sold at the same price, you might wanna get the 4GB one, just in case you need that extra VRAM in some games. You should also consider that some Sapphire cards can get a ted bit noisy during heavy use. The ASUS card is almost silent. It is also clocked higher than the Sapphire version.

    Conclusion: If you play on a 1080p monitor, get the ASUS version. If you play on a bigger resolution, get the Sapphire one. Don't listen to those people who say that more VRAM will make your rig future proof, because it won't.

    Well right now I have a vga 1440x900 monitor but I will be getting a 1080p monitor soon and I don't plan on getting a monitor with a higher resolution than 1080p any time soon.

    Then I would suggest you get the ASUS one. It is almost silent and cool when running intensive games. You can also do some overcloking yourself, but the card will draw more power and will run hotter.
