The R9 280X will be the best choice here :) 
It's cheaper, and they're pretty much grinding up at each other in performance. Different performance in some games, but overall almost the same.

Strange the Sapphire one didn't state the clock speed.

If you are going overclock, the 280X will be the best bang for your buck.

The MSI GTX 770 is not bad either, with 4GB of vram and factory overclocked even faster than EVGA's superclock. As usual the Nvidia option is more expensive but not too bad only $25 more.

Thanks but that is the stock speed. The Sapphire one is non reference and probably has a higher factory set speed.
