HD 7950: Gigabyte or Sapphire

In a few days I'm gonna buy a new pc and I can't decide between this Gigabyte HD 7950 & this Sapphire one. Both come with the AMD Never settle promo. Which do you think is best, I'm looking for a cool and silent card.

Both are great cards.
Go with whichever is cheaper.

I personally don't like the looks of the Gigabyte, but that's just me.

The Gigabyte is cheaper by 5 euro, but the Sapphire has this boost feature, which is more silent?

I prefer the looks of the Sapphire, so I'd probably get that.

Both are quiet - the differences between them will be tiny.

I'd definitely go with the Sapphire cause it looks better, but go with whichever is cheaper.

BTW title says 7950 but the links are for 7970.

asus direct cuII top v2. overclocks like hell and mine never exceeds 30% fan speed (its usually between 10% and 20%). you gotta have a rather large case though.
