So I'm planning on buying a 7970. I heard MSI is a good brand when it comes to graphics cards, but I don't know much abut Gigabyte and how they are with cards.

I do know that I like the fact that they use three fans:

vs

http://www.amazon.com/MSI-Computer-Corp-R7970-2PMD3GD5-...

Don't pay any mind to the prices or not being stocked, I'll be getting one sooner or later, just give me feedback on the two structures. I plan on using them for gaming obviously.

Also, I'm not a fanboy, so if there's any Geforce cards on par with these two at around the same price, let me know.

That, or I also have the option to downgrade to HD 7950 if the difference is only slight. I also plan on doing a little overclocking.
