I seriously can't decided. I am going to want to OC it, but not to any extremes. Going to be playing Skyrim with a lot of 2k texture mods. Help please!!!

Get the cheaper, which is the gigabyte.

I'm really leaning towards the MSI version. I just wanted someone to talk me out of it. For now I'm going to be going with that unless someone can give me a good reason to go with the Gigabyte version. and I dont care about the difference in money because its not huge. The MSI is $5 more after rebate than the Gigabyte version.

Both are good ones, i can't say that the msi is better, the windforce 3x cooling is superb, the same for the msi twinfrozr cooling, both offers the same warranty terms, both have the same quality.
So the cheapest one wins.
The gigabyte has good reviews :

Edit : this might be the game changer, the gigabyte has lower temperatures and noise :

Well I just read that the newer cards they ship out are voltage locked so I am going to go MSI on this one.
