Look ghz edition are not clocked by brands like asus,etc.but they are clocked by amd itself.So I recommend you tobgo with asus as for their direct cu cooling and good softwares too.Just go for itvin my opinion.If their would have been gigabyte in the list that would have been a better choice

ASUS has better quality usually. That and I've read that the ASUS card is quieter. :)

I have a 7970 stock card that I've added an Arctic Cooling Accelero Extreme cooler to and also applied the GHZ edition BIOS. My card sags a ton near the end of the card. I notice the ROG card has a back plate that may help with sag and heat dissipation.

The ASUS card will consume an additional PCIe slot though as it appears to be 3 slots deep vs. the 2 slots of the XFX card.

If you plan to overclock/overvolt I'd say the ASUS card would be better.

Would a PCI 3 card fit/work in a PCI 2 mobo? I don't know much about motherboards.
any power supply recommendations? I currently have the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... as my power supply

That psu is 100% compatible and dont worry every pcie 3.0 slots are backwards compatible with 2.0 and 1.1.it is the bandwidth that reduces but it will never interrupt your gaming
