Of the 2 cards, I would say the Sapphire one as the other one(MSI) has GDDR3 vs GDDR5(Faster!) Unless it is a typo, that is why it cost less.

as long as the 300 watt power supply is a good one.

no I agree it puts you near a 7770 but neither of those cards are 2 gigabyte cards.

How often does a mid end card have the power to use 2gigabytes of memory? Skyrim high rez pack would be about it.
I remember seeing geforce FX 5200's with 256megabytes of ram. Not that they could ever use it.

At those settings how would a 7750 cope?

I mean a 7770 will fall well under 30 fps at full settings at 1920 x 1080 so you will need to turn down the settings quite a bit and then video ram does not help.

If you start to push over that screen resolution then yes.

System ram is another beast all together.

Since i do not know of any reviews of the 2gb gddr5 7750's here is something with a bit more power.

I am not trying be an ass or anything, I just do not think mid level cards with lots of vram are at all worth the cost.

Truly depends. I mean if you don't have the funds to buy your 7850.7950 or 7970 with more then 1 gig of ram surely when you run into a game with more then 1 gig of ram usage you will hit a brick wall. However at the same time you won't be getting higher then high in some areas and medium in most with a 7750.
