They're both good cards. I've used both brands with no issues. The one with the most free games would be the obvious choice if you have the length in your PC and the PSU to handle them.

Btw, a rebate can take more than a month to get, usually 6-8 weeks. And that's if you manage to cross all the Ts and dot all the i's.

The rebate isn't a big deal but I'm going to try to do it. They both come with the same free games. Can one be OCed more or is more quiet or is there really any difference between the two?

I noticed the Saphire has a DVI Dual link, DVI single link, 1 display port, and 1 hdmi. The XFX has DVI-I (dual link), 2 mini display ports, and 1 hdmi.

I have the crossover 2560x1440 korean monitor which apparently only works with dual link DVI. Is this the same as DVI-I dual link?

Nevermind the DVI thing. It seems I can plug DVI-D into DVI-I. But are there any other differences?

Sapphire is way better than XFX. But i would pick the XFX for its lifetime warranty as Sapphire has only 2 years. And i think you want to keep that card for more than 2 years

The Newegg offer is going to cost you $380 + $7 ship. for $387.
The Tiger offer will cost you $390 up front and you'll wait a long time for the $30 rebate. And their rebates come in the form of a pre-paid debit card.
So, there's not much difference in up front costs. If I were buying, I'd probably opt for the Sapphire. Because you mention over clocking, and the Sapphire looks to have a more robust cooler with better heat pipes, I would say go for it.
