As David said, there really isn't much difference apart for different fans. I dont think you would get any difference in performance between an ASUS and a Sapphire, no matter what board it goes on.
Although i did heard about one brand (cant remember which) that make their cards with lower clock speeds than the others, dunno if thats true
