I plan on buying a 7970 ghz edition and have limited it to these three choices
Sapphire Vapor-X
XFX Double D
Gigabyte Windforce x3

I would buy a regular 7970 and overclock it but I've heard that the 7970s are better binned.

Well, I was gonna recommend the sapphire, but the gigabyte version offers a better cooling solution and comes with a 3 year warranty vs. sapphire's 2 year warranty.

The gigabyte seems great, but I'm a bit hesitant to buy it as I'm returning a gigabyte 7970 (not ghz) because its defective (driver crashes at stock factory overclock and yes I have tried reinstalling drivers and using driver sweeper)

Yeah, I figured as much. And I was a bit hesitant to recommend the gigabyte as well in the beginning due to their meh customer support.

Then I'll go back to my original recommendation...get the Sapphire looks and sounds badass. :D
