They are the same GPU, Just different manufacturers and different coolers.

The double fan design will be quieter than the single center fan, and likely cooler. That gets my vote.

They're a little cheaper on newegg right now (plus you don't have to pay sales tax). Is there a reason you want to buy from microcenter?

microcenter has a no questions asked return policy. it's extra nice if you live near one, plus you don't have to wait for mailing things back and forth if you run into issues. aside from that, I like the gigabyte design as well

This is true. I just don't like paying the sales tax. :) 

Adds ~$20 to a purchase like this (depending on where you live)

Yup, you can O.C it to much higher levels. Some people had alot of luck using TriXX vs afterburner afaik.
