Hi, I'm putting together a pc this week and the only thing left to buy is a graphics card. I decided to go with the 7950 b/c it overclocks so well. I'm stuck on which one to purchase though
Gigabyte Windforce - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
MSI Twin Frozr III - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
HIS IceQ - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Sapphire - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I honestly can't decide between the 4, and I'm sure they'll all perform just fine. Sapphifre has the highest core clock out of the box, but this doesn't matter if I overclock it, so then it all comes down to which one overclocks better and has the best coolilng. Any help will be appreciated.

3570k (will be overclocking)
8gb ram
1920x1080 resolution

The only one of those I know for sure is a fully custom card is the Sapphire, and Sapphire is the best Radeon brand anyways, so I'd pick that one up for overclocking :)

Sapphire! Sapphire cards overclock SO easily it's not even funny! I love Sapphire. I feel stupid NOT buying a Sapphire card before!

Best of luck! Have fun :) 

Oh and even the Gigabyte is an amazing overclocker. But I'd go for the Sapphire.

From what I can see, the regular sapphire card is 950mhz core clock while the vapor-x is 850mhz. So what is different about the vapor-x that makes it better?
