Go for asus one. It has non reference cooler, so it will be cooler.

What do you mean by non-reference cooler, don't they both have a different cooler to the normal 7850?

Sorry, my bad. You're right, they both have custom coolers. I'd still go for asus - it's a bit cheaper :) . They should perform the same, so there's little reason going for the more expensive one.

Alright, thanks.
But I need a mini dp-dp connector, and the msi card has one included.
So instead of paying extra for the connector, I'll just go for the msi card.

Oh, in that case it's wiser going with MSI then. When choosing the card always check whether the wanted card supports features you require :) .

Asus makes great motherboards, but in my [limited] experience, dicey video cards (2/4 Asus cards died within days or weeks of first use). OTOH, I don't know that I'd trust MSI motherboards, but several people I trust rave about their video cards. Other good brands for AMD video cards in my own experience have been HIS and XFX.
