  1. Best answer
    experience tells me that XFX generally make higher quality video cards, and saphire tend to make reference boards., however passive cooling might sound more attractive to certain people who are picky about noise. either way, i dont see much difference between the two
  2. one is ddr3 and the other ddr2 will that affect compatibility with my dell xps 400?
  3. ddr3 will run cooler than the ddr2, hence this might contribute to the reason why the saphire board is passively cooled. however, neither with have an effect on compatibility with your machine.
