Amazon has a asus 7850 for $250+free ship vs Newegg xfx 7850 for $270+7.56 ship?

Xfx: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150609

Asus: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B007JLFV7U/ref=mp_s_a_2?qid=1336250308&sr=8-2
Better specs here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121623

I'm stuck because I've always gone with xfx but why would asus another large name company be cheaper? The only thing I can see different is the asus has 1 6pin power and xfx has 2 6pin which idk why if anyone could explain would be appreciated? And finally what is your opinion which one would you get? Money isn't super tight but if both are about the same performance I'll go with asus but let me know what y'all think.

To be honest if I was in your shoes I'd be stuck aswell.

XFX and ASUS both have good designs.

But because I'm always short on money I would probably go with the asus just for being cheaper.

I have this dillema right now as well but in my case the asus is more expensive but it has two fans so over clocking will be better.. what do you think?

More fans doesn't mean better overclocking but if sure doesn't hurt. Amazon still has the asus 7850 for $250. You can find other brands on newegg for $239. If the difference is a few bucks then go asus they have a oc software. If your going to spend that kind of money might as well get what you want.
