Hello,
My friend has bought 2 cards: MSI 5850 Twin Frozr II and Sapphire HD 5850 TOXIC, one for himself and one for me. Hes asking me which one do I want and I don't know which to choose. I need your help. Which one is quieter and which is better for OC'ing.

wow....you have amazing friends....

The only way to tell which one will overclock the most is to test them both and find out for yourself.

I would go for the twin frozr II because of the cool name and how shiny it is.

Really it won't matter much which brand they're both good.

the msi one is probably better because you can use msi afterburner which will allow you to overclocker it more easily, and the coolers are more effective keeping your card cooler

Afterburner works on any cards. But you might be right about the cooler.

Don't get the MSI Twin Frozr, and tell your buddy to send it back, these cards are known to have issues with increasing voltage, their main selling point.
