Default The Same??

I am looking at purchasing a new graphics card, and have narrowed it down to the following 2:
Connect3D ATI Radeon 9250 256MB DDR + DVI + TV-out AGP Retail
Sapphire ATI Radeon 9250 256MB DDR, 8x AGP, DVI, TV Out Retail

Both of the say ATI Radeon 9250 and basically iwas was wandering, what is the difference between them (i'm new to this stuff).

Is ATI the driver and Connect 3D the card maker or what.

In a word, i'm confused as to the difference in the cards and their names and would like some clarification please.

Thank in advance
