Default Whats the difference between these GPUs? Help Please.

Okay here are three GPUs I am looking at for my first build. Other than the fact that one is out of stock (newegg only), which one is the best? They are all very close in price and seem to have roughly the same specs?

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100312SR Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100312-2SR Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE FleX 100312FLEX Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

These will be for my gaming build. Also, I plan on getting a second one of these cards in the future to crossfire them. Any guidance would be appreciated.

The only differences I see are the coolers.

I take it you are talking about how they look and where the fans are on them?

So basically they are the same.

Thanks Trotter you've been a great help. On other forums you can give kudos and thumbs up to people to show that they have been helpful. Is that the case here as well?

EDIT: nevermind I found the rep button
