  1. Best answer
    They are both pretty much identical in terms of performance. The HIS will probably run a little cooler and quieter. I am not sure how support is for either manufacturer. The Sapphire is 10 bux cheaper if it matters.

    If you want cheapest: Sapphire
    If you want quietest: HIS
    If you want a bigger brand name: Sapphire
  2. You won't notice any difference. They are the same card. I would go with the Sapphire because it is cheaper.
  3. Neither save a little more money
