I have my mind set an a HD7950 from Sapphire, but I'm not really sure which version.

1. SAPPHIRE HD 7950 OC 3GB GDDR5 950 MHz Edition http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1&gid=3&sgid=1157&pid=1551&psn=&lid=1&leg=0

2. SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 OC with Boost http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1&gid=3&sgid=1157&pid=1547&psn=&lid=1&leg=0

Both cost about the same.
So, which one would you choose?

Take the 2nd choice. The vapor-x is an amazing cooler. It increases the overclocking potential of the 7950. I have the vapor-x version and it cools the card amazingly. I have mine oc'ed to 1235 MHz without any heating issues.
