There will be little to no difference between either. Gigabyte looks like it is clocked faster, so may give you a few more FPS in gaming, but they will be the same for video editing. My suggestion, buy a GTX 770 with 3GB VRAM. THAT will help you with you video editing. Also, will help you with your gaming, as many games now utilize more than 2gb of ram. At this point, 2GB is actually inadequate. With higher resolutions screens and higher res textures, I would personally suggest you strongly consider at least the 3GB version over the ones you mentioned

Well it comes with the EVGA Acx cooler (built in), this means its much better cooled than the referance cooler, I would go for the evga 4gb superclocked with acx cooler or the msi twin frozer

There is little to no difference in performance or overclocking ability with the various third party coolers. Some run a few degrees cooler or quieter than others, but its nothing material. I have a Gigabyte GTX 770 4GB, but I would have been just as happy I'm sure with MSI or EVGA.

I have the MSI GTX 770 Twin Frozr OC Edition, and I love it! If your just using one monitor then 2gb vram should be enough. I have never had any problems with not having enough vram, but I do not do much video editing, so I wouldn't know in that department.
