Brand. That's about it.

Realistically, they're the same card. There may be clock speed differences though.

Maybe it's different because one is sold by another company and not amazon. They might not have decreased the price yet.

Do you think that the sapphire card would be a good buy ?

That's the R9 295x2 Reference design. I'm assuming they may have mildly different clock speeds, but nothing too much. It's like how the R9 290 has Asus and XFX both making the same reference cooler but with different prices and clocks.

The XFX seems to have a different (slightly thicker) rad.

Resolution is a word. 5 is a number.

What CPU do you think would go good with this card ?

Always check who is selling things on Amazon. The XFX card comes from a third-party vendor, and it looks like they're price-gouging. In my experience, that's common.

Some sort of i5-i7, preferably i7.
