It's reccomended that you use the same GPU but it doesn't really matter.Just as long as you get a card that has the same clocks as the the one you have now you shouldn't have any problems.

i would get the same one as you have now, that will alleviate any compatability issues with different bios's/PCB's

The only other reference design still out is from XFX but I would just go with the Sapphire anyway.Just be sure to get the stock version and not the O.C.
