Any 7950 will be great, as long as it isn't one of the bad looking ones.
I prefer Sapphire or HIS.

The 2L and 3L are voltage unlocked. The 2L is shorter but the 3L is a reference board. I have the 3L and it overclocks like crazy on stock voltage. Bought it based on that, and it ended up being true. Not sure how the 2L compares in overclocking.

the 2L (sapphire model 11196-16-20G) is a AMD reference PCB design and the 3L (sapphire model 11196-19-20G) is custom PCB. also the 3L does not have VRM temp sensors. both cards have unlocked voltage. the 2L is 29cm long and the 3L is 27 cm long. go with the 2L

For the OP another good option is MSI HD 7950 OC. the new cards are all boost edition with 960 mhz boost clocks. easily overclock to 1150 - 1200 mhz . unlocked voltage. MSI cards sometimes have poor TIM application at the factory. so you need to clean and properly reapply a high quality TIM like Prolimatech PK1.
