Graphics card recommendations?

So I'm planning on buying a new graphics card but I want to keep it below $350. Some choices I have come across:
MSI Radeon 7950 3GB -
EVGA SuperClocked+ - GTX 660 Ti 3GB
EVGA GTX 660 Ti 3GB -
Sapphire Radeon 7950 3GB -

It will be running with an AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz six core CPU, 8GB RAM, a GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 Motherboard, a Corsair 750W PSU, and my case also has six to eight 120mm fans (can't remember exact number)

Also, noise isn't a concern for me but I don't want a card that will get really hot and damage itself. Suggestions are welcomed and appreciated but I just want it to stay $350 or below, NOTHING over.

  1. Sapphire's HD 7950 Vapor-X comes with a large dual-fan cooler that uses the company's famous vapor-chamber technology. On the Vapor-X you will also find a "Lethal Boost" button which switches to a second BIOS with higher clock speeds. With this BIOS, clocks are increased to 950 MHz GPU and 1250 MHz memory. Pricing of the Sapphire HD 7950 Vapor-X is 330 USD
