So there are two i found. right now on my list is the sapphire, but reading through some oneelses forum post i was introduced to the powercolor 2g version of my card for 5 dollars more. Now i don't know which to pick. It's for an AMD radeon build 500-600 dollar build.

I know the sapphire is better than the powercolor in the 1g department but for 5 dollars more is the 2gig lesser brand worth it?

Yes, 2GB version is better, powercolor isn't bad, so get the 2GB.

What about the powercolor only having one fan where the sapphire has two. Is that an issue at all?

The cooler of the powercolor is enough for the card.
