Which Radeon HD 7850 Should I Get?

I have no idea which one to pick there are so many choices. There are also 1gb and 2gb versions. Does the extra gb actually make a difference? I'm also looking for a card that offers excellent ocing abilities and cooling
The ones i like so far are below:

MSI Twin Frozr PE Radeon HD 7850 2gb: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127688

Sappfire 2GB OC: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102999

Same sapphire card with different stickers?: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102984

XFX Double D Radeon HD 7850: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150609

    if you have good ventilated case then go with MSI...(case airflow has to be good to cope up with extra heat that twin frozer generate).
    other wise go with sapphire i do have mine 2 gb 7850 sapphire, runs cool and quite...idle is around 35 and never goes beyond 62 at full load(in my country room temp is always around 35 ;) )

    Go with 2 GB variant as most of the new graphically demanding games usage more then 1 GB V RAM(EXA--Skyrim ,bf3 on ultra)...so 2 gb will make you future proof for forthcoming insane gaming title..(mind that price difference isn't that much between 1 gb & 2 gb)
  2. Of the two Sapphires, would go with the cheaper one. It has two DVI, one HDMI and a single Displayport. The other has two Mini-Displayports, a DVi and HDMI. So you get more useful (because Displayport monitors are expensive) display outs on that card.

    All the cards are the same (except for the cheap Sapphire), so just get the one you like the look of. Only wouldn't get the XFX as it has reference(ish) cooling.
