My new PC gaming build

I'm bulding computer for new games:GTA 5,BF4,CRYSIS,GW2 (mostly of it). So for now i have this:
-MSI Z77A-GD55
-INTEL Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz 6MB BOX LGA1155
-CORSAIR Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9G 8GB (2x4GB) PC12800 DDR3
-WD WD1002FAEX 1TB 7.2/64M/S600 Black Edition
-ZALMAN Z11 Plus
-SCYTHE Ninja 3 SCNJ-3000 Rev. B
-CORSAIR GS700 Gaming Series 700W

Now I cant decide about graphic card. I think I will buy 7970HD but I dont know which one. Should I buy GHZ edition or overclok it by my self? And from which "company" should I buy,I know Asus,MSI,Gigabyte are the bust but what about Sapphire.

Tnx for opinion and help.

  1. Are you planning to overclock or dual gpu? What's your budget? I'm assuming you don't need a monitor, os, mouse or keyboard. For Radeon HD's, Sapphire is my favorite brand. They look sick, reasonable price most of the time and easily overclockable.
  2. If you're on a single monitor, a 7950 is good. You only get like 10% more frames with a 7970 on a single monitor. I recommend MSI or Gigabyte.
  3. I dont rly have a budget,but i donta want to spend too much so i woud say 1150euros.I woud over clock and maybe go later,after 2years too dual gpu.I know saphhire is cheaper then oders,but this is what concers me and i dont have a lot of information about their quality. And i will use 2 monitors,Msi cost too much in my country,gigabyte ghz edition also cost more then sapphire ghz so i dont know. First i woud like to know if i should take ghz edition or not,diffrenc is about 70-90euros.
  4. A ghz edition is just a 7970 with higher stock clocks. Get a regular 7970 non ghz and overclock it yourself.
  5. Now i only need to decide which brand to take. MSI cost too much (500€),ASUS have heat pipes problems, so I need to decide Gigabye or Sapphire.

    I think I will take Sapphire,yes it's OC and maybe its better to be so becaouse I never overclocked graphic. So i have few questions.

    1.Is Sapphire/Gigabyte good brand ? (does they have failurs,do they have good support...)
    2.If later I take same graphic card for crossfire will there be enough space ?
    3.Is this cool system enogh good ?

    Thanks for answers and help.
