The Gigabyte is probably the best of those cards and the Sapphire is a close second. The other one is not bad at all, but it's considerably more expensive than the Gigabyte while being ever so slightly slower.

As long as you have enough space (3-slots) this is a great card. I have the 680 version and the large heatsink makes the card much less noisier.

Pros:
- quieter
- probably better overclocking potential
- backplate? (mine does, couldn't find a picture of the back)

Cons:
- 3-slots ( a non-issue if you don't need those slots)

Other:
Don't forget to verify that it fits in your case, and your PSU can handle it (min 550Watt PSU with enough 6-pin/8-pin connectors)

You don't need a 550W PSU for a 7950. Many good 500-520W models are plenty for it. Overall wattage of a PSU matters far less than the +12V power delivery.
