Though I'm an Nvidia fanboy, I'd go with the Gigabyte 7950. Both prices are screamers, but you want the better cooling of the triple fan Gigabyte. Don't ever buy the standard products.

Erm... just a side note: You know that the deal on the 670 is in-store only, right?

And even though I own a 670, I'd go with the Radeon - the cooling and overclocking headroom is amazing.

Your processor, motherboard and either video card are 3rd Gen (PCIe 3.0) - which is the right approach for a start from scratch build - and both the choices you've selected have the best price-to-performance ratio in the enthusiast category.

Tom's own recommendation in the Best PCIe Card: $375 And Up category is the HD 7970:

And the rest is personal preference.
