Go for the TF3. Much higher quality card, all metal cooler, comes with vrm heatsink, and has virtually no sagging. Sapphire cards are great too but are largely plastic and tend to coil whine more so than others. If you can find the HIS IceQ X2 7950 for a good price, get it - best cooler among all 7950s and very high quality well-built card.
