Vapor X all the way. Might also want to look into Sapphire Toxic. Superior aftermarket coolers and oc ability.

The only problem with both cards is they cant handle CFX temps because of how they are cooled. For your resolution you will want to get 2 cards unless you are not that crazy about graphics but then again graphics > stretched resolution.

If I was in the market for a 7970 I would go for vapour x sapphire or HIS ICEQ

Zealot has a point about cooling and cfx, but I think all air cooled cards have issues in cfx

you can still run crossfire it all depends on how you space your cards out on your motherboard. Ive got two DCII cards and the top one gets hot since they are sandwiched together.

The heat is what i think he was refering to but if you space them and dont sandwich them you will be fine
