That is a killer rig.
Go with the sapphire. They tend to be more reliable, and they have better drivers than most everyone else.

What OS are you using?

A modular PSU has removable power cables that allow you to use only the ones you need to help with wire clutter. If you're anal about the clutter inside your case, they are a nice option. Performance wise, they are identical.
