if your shopping on newegg, get the msi. msi has great oc software.
i would avoid all biostar products.

you should check out this chart.
that is a little vauge of a description, here are some other factors to consider when buying.
Effective memory clock = higher is better
core clock = higher is better
memory interface = higher is better

With a 5670 you won't really need 1GB of vram since you'll have to play with lower resolutions and less AA/AF. i'd get the cheaper one, if they only differ 5-10 dollars then it won't hurt to get the better one.
