If you can afford the $10 more, a sapphire or powercolor 7870XT will smash either of those cards, as it's actually a disabled 7950 chip.

Sapphire Radeon HD7870 XT Edition with Boost (925Mhz), 2GB GDDR5 (6000Mhz), PCIE3.0, DVI, HDMI, Dual Mini DisplayPort is the best one?

Yep, that's the one.

Even clocked 100MHz less, it'll be about 10% faster than any normal 7870, and if you overclock it at all, well...

The first MHz is the core clock - how fast the graphics core is running. However, IT MEANS NOTHING.

It's important that you keep that in mind. It's actually not that much lower than the gigabyte chip, and in any case, that sapphire is based off of a completely different technology that is significantly faster.
