I am having trouble over which card should I get, the Gigabyte HD 5850 or the Sapphire HD 5850? In my place, the Sapphire is US$ 20 more than the Gigabyte. I don't really care about the price, just the performance. Which is the better card?

Thank you very much.

Sorry for being such a newbie, but what's an XFX?

Oh thanks.

But the only choices I have are Gigabyte HD 5850 and Sapphire HD 5850, so which do I choose, with the Gigabyte $20 cheaper?

Do they both cool the same way?

well is it worth paying 20$ more just for another brand? at least i would not. i think they have the same bundle and everything.

So they are exactly the same, just with the stickers?

just find out who has better warranty and bundle and then decide if sapphire is worth 20$ extra.
