Hey Guys,

I'm confused between the difference of the below three models:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

They all seem to appear the same (except for one has two fans instead of one) but are all priced differently. Specifically I am confused because PC Part Picker had them all listed as separate (different) items.

So I guess my question is this: when choosing a specific model GPU, for example the radeon 7850, how can i easily distinguish the differences between models? More importantly, the differences that aren't so obvious such as VRAM (1 vs. 2 gb). Sorry, i'm a noOob so all of this stuff can be confusing for me!

Thanks so much for your help!!

No real difference between those apart from the dual fan on one, all have the same clock and memory speed and all 2GB. Performance will be the same.

I'll go with a sapphire one if I was you, I always get a sapphire gpu and they haven't disappointed me to date. Also sapphire give nice freebies like Hdmi cable, a molex to 6 pin, a dvi to VGA etc.

Awesome thanks a lot guys - do you think the dual fan is worth the extra cash? Is a dual fan necessary?

If you plan to overclock the card the dual fan probably will offer better cooling performance.

I'd buy the dual fan model. Most high end models have dual fans and we know how hot GPUs can get. I'd guess single fan models are the first ones released, then followed by dual fans. (only speculation)

The real reason to buy the dual fan model is that is comes with 3 free games. That's a definite deal!
