The cooler design and clock speed is different. I would go with the Sapphire. Its a great choice and will be very fast for some time. The 7870 is fast too and if that is all you need, a good choice too. What resolution are you running? That will make the difference. Also, check benchmarks for the games you like to play as that will tell you which card to go with.

the sapphire 1 is better it has better cooling and a higher clock speed then the other

Definitely sapphire great cards, and great warranty department also note newegg has the 3 free games. I don't see then on circuit city and I think I read it was retailer specific.
