That all looks pretty good. There is no obvious "excess fat", that leads to easy ways to save money, without reducing performance, or quality.
Personally, I would slightly prefer the Gigabyte version of that GPU, at the same price, although you should check if there are any significant differences, in RMA/support, where you are.
