So I'm planing to buy a Radeuon HD 7950 series graphics card. Im looking at the SAPPHIRE 100352-2L Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GDDR5, and the GIGABYTE GV-R795WF3-3GD Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GDDR5, but I'm not tech savvy enough to know if there is an appreciative deference between the two. If you all had to pick one witch one would it be and why?

there is no difference as they are the same model cards produced by two different ventors

they both use aftermarket heatsinks (gigabyte 3 fans vs sapphire 2 fans)

pick a card that offers a better game bundle or warranty

They're both good brands, so you can't really go wrong. That said, the Gigabyte cards have arguably the best aftermarket cooler on them of any, and their warranty lasts for 3 years instead of 2.

It says the Gigabyte card is out of stock though, so it might not be worth the wait for you.

I have the Gigabyte Windforce 7950. Temps never go above the 60's c and it is quiet. My previous card was a Sapphire HD 5770 and it was also a good card!
