Default Graphics cards question

Im looking for a new graphics card, and came across the ATI Radeon HD 6790 1GB which is perfect for me, but when i try and find the cheapest site i keep coming across what is supposedly the same card, that looks completely different. Are they the same card, or is there some difference i should look for?


NEW! ATI Radeon HD 6790 1GB - Dino PC Ltd


MSI ATI Radeon HD 6790 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card - Aria Technology

The first one is the AMD reference model, the second one is MSI custom. They both have the same chips, but they're using somewhat different designs. It really isn't important unless you're going to be overclocking it, or you need different display ports.
