They are more or less equally powerful, I'd take the Sapphire one. System specs? Wouldn't power either of them with a poor power supply.

I7 2770k 2.8GHz, 16gb Corsair Gaming Ram and a 1200w Corsair Power Supply, Win 7 Pro. Im sure that enough for the Sapphire. Im still confused, the price for the MSI is more than the Sapphire, yet form what ive seen in reviews and read on the forums ppl say the Sapphire, so why is the MSI more expensive?

Power supply is overkill, but go with the Sapphire. Sapphire can be cheaper because they are AMD's #1 partner, and because they can take less of a profit, and because MSI is Missing Some Intelligence and Might Suddenly Explode
