Is there a difference between these 4 cards? They are all 7850 but i am just checking. Also which would would be better for gaming (more demanding games).

ASUS - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

XFX - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

MSI - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

SAPPIRE - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Let me know what you all think :D 

PS. I am assuming these are all better than a GTX 560 ti, correct?

Yes, they're all better than the 560ti in my opinion, but not by much (hence the similar pricing)

As for the differences, if your case has good cooling, I'd go with the XFX as it has by far the highest manufacturer OC, and it has lifetime warranty

otherwise, personally the dual fan models are all very similar, should cool a bit better than the XFX, and that'll help with cooling. if your case doesn't have good airflow. of course, if you're up for some overclocking, you can always clock these cards to the same clock as the XFX one

The 7850 is at the same level as a GTX 570 so yes it is better than a 560Ti. The XFX is the more expensive and it's most likely because of the clock speed. The MSI one does not list the clock speed but judging from the price it's most likely the same as the Asus and Saphire. I would go with the MSI then the XFX then the Saphire and the Asus.

While I agree, I must again point out the life-time warranty with the XFX card, while you only get 2 years warranty from the other companies. so depending on how long you plan on running the card, the XFX may be worth the extra money

The xfx has two pci-e connectors and it uses the pcb of a 7870 so it should have the highest oc potential. Too bad it's not double d's ;) .

"You’ll notice that XFX’s R7850 Black Edition is powered via two power connectors, a result of using the PCB made for HD 7870 cards". The ordinary xfx also has two 6 pin power connectors.
