Sapphire HD4870 1GB DDR5 TOXIC

I have a Sapphire HD4870 1GB DDR5. photo: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41KZWJ7EAIL._SL500_AA280_.jpg
And this is Sapphire HD4870 1GB DDR5 TOXIC. photo: http://images.dailyradar.com/media/uploads/pc/story_large/2009/04/14/sapphire_hd_4870_toxic_1gb_01.jpg

They both have the same look. 3 heatpipes and a black cover. but there are some stickers on TOXIC including Vapor-X.
I read in an article that Vapor-X are those 3 pipes and TOXIC is Overclocked. 30 MHz core and 100 MHZ memory.

I bought my 4870 30$ cheaper than TOXIC and as it appears the only diffrence is Frequencies. I can OC my card myself with ATI Overdrive, so why should I pay 30$ more?
If there is any other diffrence and I'm wrong, plz post it.
