Okay, I tried to find this, because I am sure this has been asked before, but I couldn't find it.

I am buying a 5850 card this weekend, and I can chose between a Vapor-X or a "regular" sapphire card. The price difference is less than $10 so I was mainly wondering what the difference is. I know that Toxic has a bunch of extra features, but I don't know about the Vapor-X.

I intend to maybe OC it in the future, so if the Vapor-X has a better cooling, that'd be awesome, but does anyone know where I can find the info on this?

Vapor-X refers to an non-reference heatsink fan cooling system used by Sapphire.

The main benefits are 1) a little lower temperature, 2) better potential overclocking.

Toxic uses Vapor-X, but is overclocked by default.
